The breadth of training that master of business administration graduates receive prepares them to become high-level managers and lead in a challenging and evolving business environment.
The MBA program is rigorous and comprehensive, and demands student commitment. The curriculum develops a set of broad-based, integrative skills. Core courses provide a solid foundation in both business management and analytical disciplines, a foundation that fosters continued career growth. In addition to core courses stressing key functional areas of business, students can choose electives specific to a chosen area of concentration.
The case study method and student projects are used broadly throughout all courses, and common areas of study such as ethics, technology, communications and international issues are integrated throughout much of the curriculum. Students learn about management theory and its practical applications in “real-world” situations. Lectures, seminars, team teaching, team projects and guest lectures are various approaches taken by the faculty to generate new ideas and encourage student input.
The study of business focuses on the study of workplace organizations and their operations, including methods of management and business strategies. Accounting, finance, management, entrepreneurship and marketing are a few areas of specialization within business, and students completing a business degree can expect to acquire knowledge about useful business policies, how businesses operate, how to successfully manage employees, how to manage finances and how marketplaces function.
The MBA program is designed to give students the flexibility to create a program that supports their personal and professional goals. Students take a set of core courses, as well as a number of electives that can be focused on one of the functional disciplines of finance, marketing, management or systemsoperations. Focus areas can be further enhanced with specialities in entrepreneurship, real estate or sustainability. Graduate courses from outside the business school also add to each student’s unique skill set, as well as their desirability to employers.
The Leeds School of Business encourages qualified individuals to apply regardless of gender, race, religion, national origin, age, physical limitation or sexual orientation.
