The Program
Today's service-oriented economy presents both opportunities and challenges in the business domain. Business managers are faced with a formidable array of new products, emerging markets, international partnerships and mergers, and developing technologies. The Master of Business Administration program provides a broad view of the functional areas business managers need, including corporate finance, economics, strategic planning, marketing, and accounting.

General management

Through its innovative, interdisciplinary curriculum, this practitioner-oriented degree offers both novice and seasoned managers a comprehensive business education built on proven adult learning principles. The program integrates key foundational theories, models, and best practices from diverse disciplines - including anthropology, psychology, and sociology - to enable learners to develop global perspectives and practical knowledge for managing people and productivity in global environments.

Course of study
