The Master of Business Administration (MBA) is an internationally-recognized degree designed to develop the skills required for careers in business and management. The value of the MBA, however, is not limited strictly to the business world. An MBA can also be useful for those pursuing a managerial career in the public sector, government, private industry, and other areas.
Most MBA programs include a “core” curriculum of subjects, such as accounting, economics, marketing, and operations, as well as elective courses that allow participants to follow their own personal or professional interests. Some schools require that MBA candidates complete an internship at a company or organization, which can lead to concrete job opportunities after the program.
The Master of Business Administration (MBA) program at our University is designed to give our students what they seek in a business program: relevance, flexibility, connections to the “real world”, and instructors with experience in the field. But it is also designed with employers in mind. They told us they expect our students to have integrated core business knowledge, practical experience, communication and teaming skills, the ability to manage change, and a global perspective.
Our students achieve these attributes through programmed skill-building, business simulations, development of their own business plan, and the option to spend two quarters on a real world projects. Students may choose to concentrate on Accounting, Change Leadership, Finance, Global Management, Global Marketing, Human Resource Management, Project Management, Sustainable Business, or Technology Management.
