The Dominican MBA

A Dominican MBA will provide you with the skills and knowledge today’s businesses, non-profits and government agencies demand in their employees: the ability to make leadership decisions, a deep understanding of how to develop socially and economically sustainable practices, and a global perspective.


A Comprehensive Curriculum

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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

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

A Flexible Schedule

The Dominican MBA’s enrollment options maximize the speed and flexibility with which you can pursue your degree. Choose from our:
