Enhanced Core 

MBA students will develop a stronger foundation in core courses and fundamental principles of business administration and apply these principles to understanding our fast-changing business world and the impact on businesses. Additionally, adding Business Analytics for Managers to the required core courses gives students a deeper understanding of the applied problem solving that integrates technology and business problem solving to provide true value to businesses.

New Concentrations

Eight concentrations are available to MBA students when building their studies, including two new concentrations in Corporate Sustainability and Social Impact, and Effective Leadership.

More Flexibility for Students

Adding more flexibility allows each student to personalize their MBA to suit their unique needs. With new and existing concentrations, relevant course topics, graduate minors, stackable certificates and free electives from a variety of disciplines across the University, students have endless options available to them in creating the MBA that will lead them to the career paths they want, even if that means blazing an entirely new trail.

These changes will affect current LeBow MBA students, giving them the opportunity to take advantage of the new courses and concentrations. Academic advisors will reach out to affected students and assist in updating current plans of study to meet new degree requirements. Courses being replaced or updated will still be available for the upcoming academic year for students that had planned to take the courses already.
