Developing Core Essentials
During the first year, expect to develop the fundamentals of business through the core courses that provide the base for more individualized study in the second year. These courses include the functional areas of business that equip you with the important analytical tools essential for critical decision-making. Students work in task-oriented teams, drawing upon the experience and skills of peers to solve challenging business problems. Effective leadership requires students to see the big picture and to understand how all the functional areas are linked. Additionally, the first year emphasizes the role of managers in today's society by integrating social responsibility, leadership, and cultural sensitivity. Communication skills, critical to business success, are also fine-tuned through the written and oral communications course. Furthermore, the first year focuses on career preparation through the professional development course that includes job search strategies, leadership assessment, development of networking and interviewing skills, and interaction with employer guest speakers.
Internships help launch your career. In the second year of the program, students have the opportunity to explore various career tracks through numerous elective course offerings, including cross-disciplinary electives, real-world project courses and corporate internships. Because experiential learning plays an integral part in fulfilling career goals, the school requires every full-time MBA student to obtain an internship during the course of the program. (Internships may be used towards fulfilling an elective course requirement).
