The Master of Business Administration program will address the ethical, moral, and philosophical issues related to management and business leadership in a direct and meaningful approach. The program is uniquely designed to intertwine a traditional MBA curriculum with "soft skills" and will cover "the human side of management." The program goals and objectives reflect an emphasis on critical thinking, practice-based creation and interpretation of business data, and comprehensive decision making that considers all information available and all aspects of the impact of decisions.
Learners who complete the program will gain additional and practical expertise in their profession while engaging in intellectual discourse with peers and experts that will prepare the participants to be the leaders of dialog in the business world.
