To enable you to lead effectively and responsibly in an increasingly complex and interconnected world, the Desautels Faculty of Management has created a truly innovative integrated MBA curriculum that breaks down the barriers between traditional disciplines. The Professional MBA offers working students the opportunity to take their careers to the next level.
Preparing students to assume the challenges of today’s business environment, the customized approach provides students with a holistic view of business issues. Following the core curriculum, students begin a series of carefully selected cross disciplinary courses. Specifically, students will take ten courses from the areas of Strategy, Finance, Accounting, Marketing, Operations Management, Information Systems, and Organizational Behavior during the next 2 years of study.
Drawing on a variety of cross-disciplinary courses, including strategy, organizational behavior, entrepreneurship and international business, this concentration provides students with an integrated perspective on leading business issues. Students are prepared for the challenges posed by a globalizing marketplace and develop the skills valued by employers in the consulting, business development, project management, and related fields.
Emphasizing how firms raise capital and on the optimal allocation of capital for investments, students gain expertise in three sub-fields of finance - banking, corporate finance and investments. Students gain an understanding of the functions related to corporate fund management and investment decision-making.
Once students have completed the Core curriculum, they then begin a series of carefully selected cross-disciplinary courses that prepare them to assume the challenges of today’s business environment. Specifically, students will take ten courses from the areas of Strategy, Finance, Accounting, Marketing, Operations Management, Information Systems, and Organizational Behavior during the next 2 years of study.
