- Environmental Sustainability
The Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree is designed for professionals who choose to combine academic
proficiency with practical advantage in the workplace. It is a degree that aids professionals in building skills and successfully seeking employment promotion. While the MBA program emphasizes case studies and quantitative analysis in a macro context of global business and international organizations, it also includes practical work-based projects. The diversity of student backgrounds from both business and non-business fields enhances the comprehensive character of class discussion. The MBA degree is offered with three concentrations.
- The entrepreneurship concentration is designed for students who are interested in recognizing entrepreneurial potential, developing ideas, and pitching new products and services
- The Management concentration is the best option for the person who has little work experience but who wishes to pursue a career in business.
- The Environmental Sustainability concentration is designed as an interdisciplinary approach for students interested in business systems, natural systems, and sustainable development. Courses in the concentration are integrated with the core MBA courses to provide a solid conceptual and applied quantitative background for environmental managers and organizational leaders.
Graduates of the M.B.A program will be able to:
- Demonstrate reasonable integration of business principles and laws while reflecting humanistic and ethical responsibilities.
- Demonstrate the ability to appropriately apply the analytical and quantitative tools in different business settings.
- Evaluate company differences including competitor positions and advantages, markets, and macro contexts.
- Apply analytical tools and creative decision making processes in formulating business solutions for complex global problems.
The Graduate Business Committee evaluates applicants based on the following criteria:
- A cumulative grade point average of 3.00 or higher in completing a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited institution
- Two letters of recommendation
- A current resume
- An interview by invitation with members of the Graduate Business Committee
The M.B.A. programs are structured in a cohort timeframe whereby students take one course at a time. A course meets one night a week for seven or nine weeks as a part of a predetermined sequence. Continuous enrollment, as noted in the overall graduate policies, is expected.
For the MBA programs, a term is defined as two courses. A course may not be repeated in the MBA programs. No more than one class session may be missed in a course.
