Master of Business Administration (MBA)
Our MBA program enables students to gain knowledge in the core business areas of entrepreneurship, global affairs, international law and economics, and to gain experience in decision-making processes within all venues of business administration. The program provides students with high quality, professional education in business administration, thereby qualifying them for more diverse job opportunities.
The MBA program consists of three academic components: core requirements, concentration electives, and a capstone experience. In order to graduate with an MBA degree, students must successfully complete a minimum of 36 credits, of which 24 credits are core courses and 12 credits are concentration electives.
The core requirements consist of 9 required courses, worth 24 credits.
The concentration requirement is to take four classes (12 credits) from one of three concentrations: (a) Entrepreneurship, (b) Global Affairs, or (c) International Law & Economics. Each concentration consists of a pool of eight courses. Approximately 42% of students choose the Global Affairs concentration, while 29% each choose the Entrepreneurship and International Law & Economics concentrations.
During each semester of study, students are expected to complete two mandatory courses and one concentration course. Students must complete CAPS 501 during their first semester of study.
The Entrepreneurship program provides students with the necessary knowledge and experience to excel as entrepreneurs in today’s highly competitive global business environment.

As part of the program, students learn how to develop and commercialize their own projects.
The Global Affairs curriculum empowers students to think critically about the various interconnected components of the global economy. From the information technology revolution to the restructuring of supply chains, monopolistic practices to sustainable development, students gain in-depth knowledge concerning the basic dynamics that have transformed the worldwide economy.

The International Law & Economics curriculum offers students specialized courses in basic international law, trade law, and national competition law statues.
