The MBA degree has been described as the ultimate business credential, a passport to the ranks of upper management.
Yet, market globalization, advances in technology, an emphasis on customer satisfaction, a multicultural workplace, and more rigorous standards of ethical behavior require managers at all levels to operate in an increasingly complex business environment. To meet this need, the Wesleyan MBA offers two MBA programs:
- A traditional MBA for those who have completed an undergraduate degree
- A continued undergraduate/graduate degree (5 year program)
Both offer an integrative, general management curriculum that prepares managers to think and lead at all levels of an organization. At its core, our broad-based curriculum strives to create organizational leaders with multiple skills, people who can analyze business problems from a variety of perspectives and exercise ethical judgments when finding solutions.
Clearly, Wesleyan MBAs are well-trained in the functional areas of business: accounting, finance, management, and marketing. Still, it is the intersection of the functional areas that holds the answers to most business dilemmas.
Thus, the Wesleyan MBA emphasizes cross-functional training and recognizes that the basic tools available to managers proceed from the behavioral sciences, economics, and quantitative analysis. The Wesleyan MBA also acknowledges that business education should be dynamic and continually evolving. Electives in "hot market" topics are offered each term.
