Management, M.B.A.

  • Application Deadline
  • 24 months


The Management program develops both the theoretical understanding and applied business skills required to excel in an increasingly competitive global economy. Contact with the business community is integral to the professional development orientation.

The first year core curriculum takes into account the heterogeneous mix of student backgrounds. Since all students do not enter the program with the same knowledge of business foundations, concepts, and tools; a series of introductory courses are offered during the fall semester. These courses cover accounting, economics, statistics, behavioral science, and computer science. 

Students discover how the basic functions of finance, marketing, information decision systems, human resource management, information systems, and the totality of concepts, methods, and techniques learned in the first semester are mobilized to carry out a firm's policies and operational objectives.
