The business world is becoming increasingly dynamic with globalization and information/mobile technologies changing how the world does business. Change in the economic environment mandates that companies must be more efficient and effective even as Big Data analytics fundamentally changes how people manage and forecast business trends. Social networks increasingly impact consumers’ buying trends and customer relationships. And, there are four distinct generations in the workplace. At the end of the day, it’s all about leading and motivating people to maximize business performance.
After meeting with numerous professors, alumni and business partners, our curriculum is revitalized to be forward thinking to prepare business professionals to develop and implement successful strategies for today, tomorrow and beyond.
The Executive MBA program curriculum includes the fundamentals of business and now addresses questions such as:
- What strategy does your company need to distinguish itself from your competition, to advance its marketshare, and increase shareholder value?
- How does leadership align, engage, enable, and motivate employees to implement corporate strategy?
- How and where does your company deploy its corporate resources and assets? What is the best strategy to move forward?
- In a near real-time, data-driven business environment, what data do you really need to connect with existing customers, drive new business, and forecast new trends? How do you interpret and use this data?
