The Master of Business Administration (MBA) program promotes learning to synthesize the depth of management within a technology-driven world. Course content reflects current business practice in class organizations. Courses balance nurturing of an appreciation for the role of theory in effective management with practical, how-to insights. While the emphasis in the program is directed toward managing in a technology-driven world, management competencies that apply to all business operations are covered.
The program provides an ethical and legal foundation for the student’s behavior in commerce and it gives the student insights into recognizing inappropriate behavior in others. It imbues the student with detailed knowledge of managing both projects and operations.
