The mission of the Master of Business Administration program is to provide graduate learners with the skills needed to be successful managers and leader in a competitive global business environment. The MBA Program includes specializations in Human Resources, Information Systems Technology, Organizational Leadership, and Supply Chain and Logistics Management. The curriculum balances the technical, data-driven, quantitative skills to make objectives decisions with interpersonal and communication skills necessary to work effectively with people at all levels from all cultures. Most importantly, these topic areas are integrated throughout the curriculum. The concepts and theories learned in the program are applied to the capstone that combines academic and professional development.
Individuals will learn how to practice and apply theories and skills for leading positive change in workplaces, schools, organizations, and communities, across the country and world. The program is designed to support socially engaged leaders and change agents to inquire into the complex and thorny challenges of their fields and to conduct research that can help improve that practice. The program encourages students to integrate theory and practice in order to enrich their own practice and expand relevant theory. This is not about an ivory tower, but about taking your learning into your workplace and community to help make positive change, improve outcomes, and engage individuals in ways that benefit the common good.
