Management responsibilities in today’s complex multi-national business organizations transcend a single functional specialty and require a broad array of specialized knowledge.
The Master of Business Administration (MBA) is designed for mid-career professionals whose careers and management responsibilities transcend a single functional specialty and require a broad array of specialized knowledge and skills. The emphasis of this interdisciplinary, integrated, and applied degree program is on the significant organizational and management processes that take place in the context of large public or private institutions doing business on a global scale.
The goal is to prepare students for upper management and executive-level positions by developing key managerial competencies—including critical thinking, systems thinking, team building, decision making, and ethical leadership—that can be applied in any type of business enterprise.
