Master of Business Administration
The Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) program is designed for experienced managers and professionals who have the motivation and self-discipline to succeed in online study enhanced by residencies. An essential element of the program is the utilization of the Competing Values Framework as an organizing method for assessing, developing and applying managerial competencies. The program curriculum is integrated along the lines of three themes:
- ethics and corporate social responsibility
- organizational effectiveness
Another essential feature of the M.B.A. is the option to participate in an assessment process through which you can test out of up to 24 credits of M.B.A.-level knowledge and competency acquired either professionally or academically. The courses are modular in design to facilitate the various levels of expertise that different students have. Based upon your skills and experience, both professionally and academically, you may assess out of 1 - 3 credits for a given course. For example, you may assess out of 3 credits of Marketing Management and therefore skip enrolling in this course, or you may assess out of 2 credits in Managerial Decision Making and enroll in the third module only.
The maximum number of combined assessment and transfer credits that an M.B.A. student can obtain is 24.
