Weekend MBA Curriculum
Learning that inspires breakthrough thinking
- Analysis: You will gain experience using analytical models and tools that you will apply immediately on the job. You will learn to interpret results and make sound decisions from a senior management perspective.
- Strategy: You will learn to develop strategies that look beyond next quarter, next year, and even the next generation to build sustainable organizations. Some courses focus on functional areas, such as marketing or operations, while others expand your perspective of the whole organization within a global context.
- Leadership: You will enhance your leadership skills through a full-circle process of learning, practice, feedback and reflection. You also will sharpen your communication skills and create your Professional Development Plan to shape your leadership skills — and your career.
