Our curriculum will provide you with critical knowledge in all areas of business operations, including accounting, marketing, financial management, operations management and strategic management. Your core required credits are augmented by exciting electives.

Communication and Leadership Training

Leading global organizations takes more than business and technical skills. Leaders must think strategically, communicate effectively and develop strong relationships across teams.

Experiential Learning Opportunities

You will build upon classroom experience with experiential learning opportunities catered to tech-savvy professionals. All students participate in an active learning project in which they apply the lessons learned in class to an emerging or existing enterprise.
