The DeSales University MBA Program meets the needs of both working adults and their employers by providing a sound, comprehensive curriculum taught by faculty with extensive teaching and business experience.
While at DeSales, students receive personal, one-on-one attention from the very beginning so their program goals are met within their time frame.
Building upon each student's foundation of undergraduate business courses, our program combines core, concentration, and elective courses with a final, integrative capstone course.
You will be able to move at your own pace, which will be determined by undergraduate work completed, your area of concentration, and your targeted completion date.
The DeSales MBA program will provide you with a sophisticated level of understanding of the functional areas of business, as well as an appreciation of the role of business in a multicultural, international community.
An ethical framework for making personal and business related decisions is ingrained throughout the program.
The goal of the program is to provide students with a sophisticated level of understanding of the basic functional areas of business, as well as an appreciation of the role of business in our pluralistic society and the international community in which it exists. The ethical dimension of personal and corporate behavior and decision-making will be stressed throughout the program.
Successful students will be able to:
- explain how domestic and global organizations, as complex systems, function within a broader social, political, and economic environment;
- demonstrate an ability to conceptualize, synthesize, and integrate diverse inputs of both quantitative and qualitative data;
- analyze and describe the subjective, value-laden, ethical dimensions of executive behavior and decision-making within the context of Christian Humanist traditions of the University;
- explain the importance of human resource management and the need to develop and enhance personal leadership skills;
- describe, from theoretical and operational perspectives, how the various functions of business management are integrated;
- prove proficiency, at a graduate level, in written and oral communication skills;
- demonstrate a graduate-level competency in the use of analytical tools and techniques necessary for effective decision making and problem-solving in complex organizations;
- demonstrate the ability to be more creative and proactive (and less reactive) in the way business problems are anticipated, assessed, and resolved in a dynamically-changing and increasingly interdependent world.
