The objective of the Master of Business Administration (MBA)

The Master of Business Administration (MBA) aims to develop in students the ability of research and analysis, synthesis and creativity while stressing the vital importance of information and technological development and raising awareness of ethical, social, environmental and international issues affecting administrative decisions. The aim of the MBA is that students, improve their interpersonal skills, through the length of their studies, which is achieved through teamwork. The group activities are one of the assessment methods in most courses of the programme.

The MBA provides knowledge and skills in an environment that develops students’ ability to make decisions related to their field, to deepen and broaden their knowledge in the operation and management of businesses. The MBA programme also provides the opportunity to specialize in one area by taking two elective courses in topics of particular relevance to individual interests and career goals.

The MBA is a distinctive programme that encompasses the study of finance, management, marketing and related disciplines. The curriculum is designed to provide students with or without previous academic preparation in business a solid foundation in business theories and principles while developing the skills managers need to analyse situations and lead organisations. The curriculum is based upon the foundation courses found in all MBA programmes, demonstrating how each area is integrated into a successful business operation. The programme provides a general management postgraduate and post-experience education for those aspiring to or already at senior management level in organisations and equip them to perform effectively in managerial positions. Accordingly, the aim is not to pursue an academic theoretical study, but rather to enable theory to inform practice.

The MBA Programme is designed to provide an academic experience that transcends that of the traditional classroom in which the flow of information is primarily from faculty member to student. Recognizing the educational value of the students’ extensive experience, the faculty seeks to establish a vigorous dialogue in their MBA classes. The intention in MBA education is that each participant contributes to the education of the full class through sharing expertise and leading discussion when the participant’s skills and background make this possible.
