The Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree program provides students with thorough instruction in business fundamentals and value-driven decision-making, and is combined with opportunities for the development of deep self-knowledge and emotional intelligence that benefit managers across a range of industries and business contexts. The course of study is designed to provide graduates with the knowledge, skills, and perspective necessary to foster a culture of value-driven decision-making and organizational well-being in a competitive strategic environment.
The MBA balances traditional business disciplines and focus on the human dimensions of leadership and management. Core Courses provide foundational knowledge of personality, motivation and positive psychology, which are needed by those who manage the relationship of individual and organizational well-being and leading strategic actions to enhance organizational performance and sustainability. Students learn to apply, align, and balance three human strengths in organizational decision-making: rationality and logic (head); emotional intelligence (heart); and deep intuition (soul).
Attention is also given to decision-making, integrating quantitative, behavioral, interpersonal, transpersonal, and organizational perspectives. Business Fundamentals courses provide exposure to the major functional areas of business, including accounting, finance, economics, operations, marketing, strategy, law and ethics, and leadership.
Students complete their program by selecting a Concentration, consisting of courses that provide a professional specialization and foundation for their post-graduate careers. Concentrations are available in:
• Business Analytics
• Leadership and Organizational Effectiveness
• Management of Technology and Innovation
• General Concentration
