We provide a strong, broad foundation of business knowledge and we empower you to tailor a program that builds on your unique strengths, life experiences, and professional goals to accelerate your career through integrated learning.
Integrated learning focuses on the links between business disciplines for deeper understanding through overarching organizing ideas and concepts. This provides opportunities to develop and value multiple perspectives, bringing together different perspectives and disciplinary approaches.
Integrative coursework in strategic communications, computational thinking, and the core MBA curriculum provides the framework for integrated learning. Elective coursework provides experience-based learning opportunities to hone your skills in integrative management. Co-curricular experiences such as case competitions, community-based projects, summer internships, and professional development programming further complement and reinforce the knowledge you gain through the coursework.
You will have many opportunities to individualize your program by choosing the right mix of elective coursework for you. In addition to selecting electives based on your interests, you may choose to complete a Credential, Academy, and/or Business Disruption Series course(s) as part of your MBA studies.
As a Katz student, you may choose to complete a Katz Credential in order to highlight expertise and hands-on experience in a particular business area. Credentials are composed of a bundle of specialized coursework that build your capabilities, knowledge, and experience in a meaningful way. Choose from one of the thoughtfully designed tracks informed by industry trends, or consult with an advisor to customize a credential based upon your professional goals.
