Today's business climate is moving with the times in a socially- and environmentally-conscious direction. Companies are actively seeking solutions for combining profitability with world betterment. If you're interested in a degree that offers rigorous instruction in core quantitative skills while taking the triple bottom line—people, planet, profit—seriously, then consider the Weatherhead MBA.
Our school-wide thematic areas of study help you to think beyond the default response, combining the right-brained tools of a designer with a solid command of business principles. Our core curriculum, like finance, economics, and supply chain management, is informed by our guiding themes, Manage by Designing and Sustainable Enterprise. Manage by Designing
Sometimes "best practices" just aren't good enough. Design thinking imagines alternatives that have not yet made their way to the table, game-changing ideas still unformed, and fresh perspectives that could yield very different views of a problem.
We know that businesses cannot succeed by looking at every challenge through the same spreadsheet-based prism. Managers need to reach beyond one-size-fits-all solutions. Design in management consists, broadly, of observing behaviors, visualizing ideas, prototyping alternatives, and refining the best of them. The Manage by Designing approach, and the flexible, creative habits of mind that go with it, informs our curriculum and equips our graduates to consider complex, real-world challenges from a fresh and productive point of view.
