MBA Global Business

Global Business students focus on global issues or those particular to a continent or region, such as Europe, Asia or Latin America. They gain an edge in learning about the economic, social, cultural, political, and legal implications of conducting business in today’s global economy.

MBA Strategic Leadership

Geared for experienced managers, the Strategic Leadership program concentrates on leadership cultivation and development. Students grapple with salient and timely issues in the workplace, including team-building, diversity, corporate communications, ethics and social responsibility, and problem-solving.

MBA Sustainable Enterprise (Green MBA)

Designed for leaders focused on developing financially viable, ecologically sustainable, and socially just initiatives within their organizations. The GreenMBA ® takes a collaborative, project-based approach in teaching students how to integrate their commitment to environmental preservation and restoration with sound business practices.

Program Format

The Dominican MBA’s comprehensive curriculum combines an interdisciplinary set of core business courses with forward-looking specializations in leadership, sustainability or global business, and resume-building experiential learning opportunities. The program includes:

-        A 31-unit common core that gives you a thorough grounding in accounting, finance, marketing, operations and other business disciplines.

-        A nine-unit concentration that lets you specialize in global business, strategic leadership or sustainable enterprise. You can also mix and match courses from all three specializations to create your own general business specialization.

-        Included in the common core, a three-unit strategic management capstone course that integrates all of your previous coursework into a major project.

-        Also included in the common core, a four-unit Global Consulting Practicum during which you will research the strategic needs and concerns of a major international organization. You will then present your consulting recommendations in person during a 10-day in-country visit. 

The Dominican MBA focuses on the leadership, team-building, communication and negotiation skills every professional needs to be successful.
