Quantitative & Behavioral Curriculum
The M.B.A. curriculum is a blend of quantitative & behavioral classes, often with real-world applications, designed to reflect today’s integrated and global marketplace. While basic tools, theories, and concepts are a constant, modifications as a result of feedback from the M.B.A. advisory committee, industry, and alumni help keep the curriculum fresh, current, and timely.

Real-World Applications
The faculty, with varied academic, governmental, corporate, and consulting backgrounds, brings real-world experience to the classroom. As a student, you will receive the necessary theoretical background but will also learn about the latest trends and developments from faculty attuned to what is going on in the real world.  Real-world applications may be in the form of a lecture, company-based consulting project, a practicum, or other means.
