With real world experiences in every class, and with lessons taught by a team of dedicated professionals, we ensure our students learn to think critically, communicate effectively, and take initiative to support your foundation in management.

 


Tailored to provide the most comprehensive experience, you'll approach your studies through cohort-designed courses, participate in nationally recognized case competitions, and achieve career-inspired internships, all while exploring the strategies and theoretical foundations of business administration.

As you progress throughout your degree, you'll discover areas of business where you excel, along with which aspects of industry excite you the most. Students have the option of establishing generalist perspective, or may select to specialize in one of the following concentrations:

  • Finance
  • Leadership
  • Supply chain management
  • Management information systems
  • Marketing

Additionally, those who enroll in selected quantitative coursework will also have the opportunity to earn an academic focus in business analytics.

Coursework and Curriculum

Our MBA curriculum is designed to prepare you with the essential tools needed to be effective thought-leaders in today's rapidly changing corporate, non-profit, and public sectors.

During your first year, you will establish a foundation of universally-accepted business fundamentals through our core courses, critical for every manager to comprehend. Students work in task-oriented teams, drawing upon the experience and skills of peers to solve challenging business problems relative to today's managerial challenges. 

As you discover your interests, a more individualized study structure is used during the second year of the program. You have the opportunity to explore numerous elective course offerings, including cross-disciplinary electives, or customized independent study. With advising from faculty, you can also design interdisciplinary projects based on specific career tracks, strengthening your connection between passion and profession.
