Masters in Business Administration

The program's structure, with its overarching Management Practice sequence (MP), ensures the integration of concepts and experiential learning across courses and semesters. Learning and skill development are contextual, cumulative, and reinforcing.

Students are assigned to cohorts of 50 classmates, with whom they take the modules and courses in the required curriculum. Experiential learning projects are required in both the first and second years. Within the consulting project (year one) and business plan project (year two), faculty and staff compose four or five member teams to achieve a complementary mix of experience and capabilities.
