Online MBA Degree Program Course Curriculum
The focus of traditional MBA programs around the country has been the role of the general manager with broad responsibilities from finance to marketing. Thus, breadth has always been the focus of an MBA program. The world has changed; and the role of big data and business analytics has become an integral part of the general manager position as new skills must be learned in order to be the most effective decision-maker. As a result, the demands of leadership, management, and followership in this business analytics-focused environment are quite challenging and are infused throughout the Marist MBA curriculum.
The Marist MBA is offered in an asynchronous online format to accommodate the needs of working professionals. While the courses are structured and interactive - with clearly articulated assignments, projects, readings, discussions, and deadlines - there are very few times when you will be required to log-in on a specific date and time. The curriculum of the Marist MBA consists of 9 core courses and 3 elective/concentration courses. Full-time students complete the degree in as little as 4 semesters; part-time students may take up to 7 years, depending on the number of courses they take each semester. Students can start in fall or spring semesters with each semester having two rounds of eight-week classes.
The Marist MBA also offers several attractive optional concentrations in ethical leadership, finance and health care administration. A business analytics focus is infused throughout each concentration.
