Learning the basics of the MBA from Focused Program courses

MBA Focused Program courses cover and complete single subjects over one weekend. Participants can take live virtual courses hosted online by choosing from over seventy subjects taught throughout the year, focusing on the skills and knowledge they need in the specific areas in which they aim to excel. Employing graduate-level case method pedagogy and real world examples illustrating the basics of business, these courses are the best option for those who want to maximize their learning over a limited time, and sharpen their analytical and creative thinking skills. These courses are also recommended to those who want to experience business school and further consider obtaining an MBA, as the credits earned from MBA Focused Program courses can be approved as credits required for completion after enrollment in one of our school's master degree programs.
