What to expect

In the classroom

What can you expect? Expect a life-changing journey. Our classroom experience is dynamic, we bring students and faculty together from diverse backgrounds, both professionally and culturally. You will have the opportunity to learn, network, and share information with fellow students from around the world who are employed by local, regional, national, and global companies.

Outside the classroom

What can you expect? Expect to be challenged, our M.B.A. program will take you out of the classroom where you will put those in-class skills to the test with our real-world capstone consulting course. Why is this so important? Because learning doesn’t simply come from a course or a textbook, learning comes from doing.

Concentrations are available in Finance and Human Resource Management, or you may pursue a General M.B.A.
