Master of Business Administration

The Master of Business Administration (MBA) program promotes learning to synthesize the principles and practices of management within a technology-driven world.
Course content reflects current business practice in best-of-class organizations. UMT’s knowledge of current practice comes from its close ties with leading edge companies and government agencies. Courses balance nurturing of an appreciation for the role of theory in effective management with practical, how-to insights.

While the emphasis on the program is directed towards managing in a technology-driven world, management basics that apply to all business operations are covered. The program provides an ethical and legal foundation for the student’s behavior in commerce and it gives the student insights into recognizing inappropriate behavior in others.
It imbues the student with detailed knowledge of managing both projects and operations. It describes how effective managers lead—how they make decisions to motivate others and how they organize efforts to tap into human capabilities most effectively.

MBA Concentrations

 

General Management

The program addresses the reality that the world will not beat a path to the door of innovators—that they need to package, distribute and sell their concepts and products in order to be successful in business.
It provides a framework for understanding the philosophy of the scientific method and its impact on quantitative and
subjective decision-making, especially in the context of risk and uncertainty. And it teaches students to “follow the money,”
to discern the financial underpinnings of individual businesses and the economic foundation of society.
