MBA - Master of Business Administration

FAll 2014 MBA Image


Today’s employers are seeking well-rounded employees who can speak the current language of business. They want employees who understand that all business is global business. They need employees that understand that sustainability is integral to the business of both today and tomorrow. They seek employees who understand that leadership is not something reserved for those sitting around the boardroom but instead is something that needs to occur at all levels of business.

Students of the Dominican MBA will emerge prepared to excel in a rapidly-changing and highly-competitive business environment. Candidates will learn, through a mix of theory and practice, how to step beyond current business models and ethically lead in an interdependent, technologically intensive and dynamically global environment.


Program Structure

  • Eight common core courses that address the three most salient themes in today’s business world: globalization, leadership, and sustainability

  • A nine-unit Concentration to personalize your MBA for your individual career aspirations. Concentration options include Global Business, Strategic Leadership, and Sustainable Enterprise (GreenMBA). Availability of the concentrations is subject to student interest, enrollment, and faculty availability.

  • The opportunity to pursue a general MBA for candidates who want to select courses from across the three Concentrations

  • A three-unit culminating Strategic Management Capstone course taught from the perspective of the three concentration areas and designed to provide an integrative demonstration of mastery of core MBA topics.

  • A four-unit Global Consulting Practicum and international trip provides invaluable real-world experience working as a consultant on a strategic business issue for an internationally-based client organization, while earning academic credit
