“The curriculum integrates social, environmental, and ethical issues while giving students the resources and insights needed to navigate ever-evolving business challenges with integrity,” explained the Assistant Director of International Graduate Enrollment, Nancy Vega.
The College recognizes that the world is being shaped by a convergence of forces not seen before—and too many management education institutions remain committed to a 19th century business model for a 21st century marketplace. Employers have repeatedly expressed a need for graduates with the ability to embrace change and shift rapidly. They seek those with complex reasoning, problem-solving and decision-making skills, and the fundamental business knowledge necessary to succeed in a hyper-connected, technology-driven global marketplace.
