Program Overview

The program employs a collaborative, applied concepts approach to learning regardless of the program delivery. Each course has a strong ethics component, real-time skills, and projects relevant to students’ professions. Part time afternoon/evening classes are offered twice a week in small groups of no more than 20 students.

Faculty who have extensive experience in business and management infuse the classroom with dynamic, hands-on approach to real world problem solving. The global environment, the technological environment, and the ethical dimensions of managerial decisions pervade the MBA program.

Program Goals

The MBA program seeks to:

  • Provide knowledge for managing effectively in a dynamic, global environment
  • Develop problem solving and communication skills
  • Enhance leadership skills and inspire commitment to ethically sound business practices
  • Foster cross-cultural understanding and demonstrate its relevance in today’s business environment.

Program Options

Throughout the entire program, MBA students work collaboratively in an assigned group within each course. These courses require the convening of each group for additional hours each week beyond the time spent in class. The purpose of these ongoing group meetings is to continue the exploration of the conceptual material discussed in class, prepare specific assignments and readings for the upcoming sessions, and to work on semester-long projects. Student commitment to these group processes is fundamental to the success of the program, the success of the groups, and the success of the cohort in general.

The philosophy of the program is that traditional “tests:” are less relevant to MBA studies. In this program the use of projects, case studies, examples, and illustrations are the most effective way to examine the material and to learn. All of the courses in the curriculum employ some combination of the following assignments:

  • Individual oral presentations
  • Group oral presentations
  • Individual written projects
  • Group written projects.

Students progress through 15, three-credit courses. Each course runs for an eight week session. The in-class courses meet for three hours, twice each week.
