Management MBA Track

Our most flexible MBA offering, the management MBA track can be completed via evening courses, Saturday courses or a combination of both. The program is also available online through our hybrid MBA program. The management track is designed from a general management perspective and is applicable across functions and industries. Coursework in this track includes financial management, project management and an elective class that can be chosen from any of the other MBA specialization tracks.

Business Analytics MBA Track

The business analytics track enhances the broad MBA curriculum with specialized training in analytical techniques that can be applied immediately to solving business problems and decision making. The student completing this track will be well equipped to tackle a range of problems in the business world. Coursework in this track includes two business analytics classes and an applied marketing analytics class.

Entrepreneurship MBA Track

The entrepreneurship track offers interested students the opportunity to develop, nurture and pursue their passion through critical thinking and problem solving, leading to new venture creation (internal or external the corporation). Entrepreneurs, by nature, live to challenge the status quo, creating opportunities for themselves and others. Because all businesses (large or small, for-profit or not-for-profit) start with an idea, this track presents students with a framework for strategy in entrepreneurial organizations — a framework that incorporates new venture emergence, early growth, reinvigoration and innovation in established companies. The track is organized in three distinct classes covering strategy, sustainable growth, finance and biomimicry.

Human Resources MBA Track

Aligned with national Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) criteria, this track provides students with fundamental managerial and leadership skills that will enable them to understand strategic and operational issues in managing human capital in organizations. The track gives participants the opportunity to study and learn with other HR professionals and to interact with managers from other business disciplines when taking courses covering key general business topics. Included is coursework related to compensation systems, employment law, and staffing and development.

International MBA Track

The international track provides students the global perspective to understand customers, markets and financial operations. This track teaches the management skills needed to succeed in the culturally and ethnically diverse environments inherent in multinational corporations. International marketing, international finance and international logistics courses are all provided in this MBA track.
