Customize your program
Choose electives from six specializations to tailor your MBA program content to your interests and career goals.
Focus your studies on international marketing to grow an existing global brand—or create one of your own. Gain specialized skills in market research, branding, consumer behavior, sales, and new product development. These combined business and marketing skills prepare graduates for a wide array of careers that go beyond traditional functional marketing.
Give yourself the competitive edge in the world of finance. Designed with input from Fortune 1000 CFOs, leading academics, and a broad range of finance professionals, this specialization provides broad exposure to areas such as corporate finance as well as developing your analytical and interpretive skills— crucial no matter what finance career path you choose.
Social responsibility and sustainability are increasingly issues at the top of the agenda for leading businesses. This specialization has been created for anyone committed to making their organizations more responsible, sustainable, and successful. Get to grips with areas as diverse as environmental economics, sustainable development and design, and social justice—and understand the way in which all of these affect the global supply chain, business practices, and future business strategy.
Got a great idea for a startup? Acquire all the knowledge, tools, and mentorship you need to start your own organization. You can further focus your studies in social entrepreneurship by gaining knowledge of how to navigate social and political issues, as well as a full understanding of how to make change happen. (Note: Since many of your professors are successful and busy entrepreneurs themselves, some of these classes might be conducted online.)
Project Management
Strong project management can mean the difference between businesses that thrive and those that fail. This specialization will equip you with the technical and people skills required to manage major projects for multinationals, family businesses, and NGOs. It is designed to give you the wide range of skills necessary for planning, organizing, securing, and managing resources to meet business objectives.
General Management
Want to ensure you have as broad a perspective as possible on global enterprises? Simply take the courses that interest you the most from any of the specializations. This will help you build the knowledge and skills that you feel will best help you in your chosen career path.
