Through the Champlain MBA Program you will learn the practical skills that will make you a more effective manager and leader. Your courses will concentrate on traditional management skills updated for today’s business environment, as well as delivering a strong emphasis on managing innovation and technology.
With the experience-based learning prescribed by our ground-breaking Integrative Reflective Practice (IRP) pedagogy, your workplace becomes an extension of the classroom, a learning laboratory in which assignments, discussions and projects tie theory to practice.
By applying the disciplines and functional-area concepts you learn in your Champlain MBA classes to real problems on the job, you strengthen and stabilize your ability to construct, measure and revise knowledge based on imperfect information. Further, your problem-solving skills, decision-making processes and overall learning are all enhanced by taking a unique cross-disciplinary perspective in every class.
