This program is designed to provide foundational business skills for those without previous business experience or education. Students then specialize in key areas to succeed in the new socioeconomic and political realities of today.
Our 20-month MBA Curriculum: Foundations and Beyond
Business acumen today requires far more than the traditional business skills that characterized 20th century MBA programs. Today’s issues and tomorrow’s challenges demand not only a solid foundation rooted in traditional business disciplines of finance, accounting, management, marketing and quantitative methods but mandate that tomorrow’s leaders be concerned with a wide range of new risks and opportunities arising from global issues that span climate change, resource scarcity, political unrest and terrorism threats, demographic shifts, and big data.
