Course Description

The MBA program has been in existence at AUB since the mid 1940s and is committed to the highest standards of quality in graduate management education. The MBA is intended for ambitious professionals on track to becoming senior managers and provides a dynamic balance between a top-down strategic mindset and a bottom-up operational orientation. While the program develops systematic, big-picture thinking and problem framing, it underscores the importance of implementation, execution and results-based management for maximum impact.

The OSB MBA has a number of characteristics that warrant its leadership status:

a) Continuously reviewed and updated programmatic content, bench-marked against international best-practices in graduate management education;

b) Rigor of admission standards unparalleled in the region;

c) Alignment with AACSB accreditation standards, whose fulfillment is a strategic target of the program;

d) A robust general management orientation which combines integrative thinking with analytical rigor;

e) An explicit focus on leadership, in keeping with the AUB tradition of producing corporate and business executive talent of the finest caliber;

f) An educational process that is student-driven, team-based and group-oriented;

g) On-going assessment of learning outcomes geared toward continuous improvement.

The Integrative Foundation period is offered twice a year (August and December). All MBA Core Courses are normally offered once every regular academic semester (fall or spring). All MBA Elective Courses are normally offered at least once per academic year.
