The MBA Strategic Leadership (MBA SL) program is a challenging, academically rigorous curriculum designed specifically for experienced managers seeking to further develop their leadership skills. Focusing on real-world pragmatic business challenges, students will grapple with salient and timely issues in the work place, expand their leadership competencies and refine their business skills. Consistent with Dominican values, the MBA SL program infuses ethical leadership, sustainability, and globalization throughout the curriculum.
Specifically designed as a part-time master’s degree program for experienced managers, students are able to earn the MBA without interrupting progress in their current careers. Students meet in a cohort of 15 to 20 students every other Saturday for 2 years. The cohort format facilitates development of a supportive learning community and enhances the opportunity for students to build on their career and social networks. Each course includes eight 4-hour sessions on alternate Saturdays. The program’s flexible learning model also includes the opportunity to complete an intensive, short-term executive study abroad trip. Two, 1-day Leadership Retreats are held at the beginning and at the end the program. The first retreat is on the Friday of the first weekend of the term; one to begin the learning community and to underscore the program’s foci on theoretical constructs, but also on the increased personal effectiveness of each participant. The culminating retreat will be held on the Friday of the last MBA weekend.
