MBA Program Structure
In today’s business environment, it is critical to understand fundamental business-level strategies for deploying resources, and the role of corporate-level strategies in setting the activities and boundaries of the firm and its strategies for competing internationally, as well as the challenges associated with implementing such strategies. Strategic management is the continuous planning, monitoring, analysis, and assessment of all that is necessary for an organization to meet its goals and objectives.
The course examines how managers effectively analyze the internal and external environment in which the organization competes and identifies key resources and capabilities that can be leveraged to create a competitive advantage. As expectations regarding the role of business in society continue to shift, managers must be aware of salient objectives that extend beyond increasingly dated notions of maximizing shareholder value.

The Marketing Management course examines marketing from a value proposition perspective; helping learners understand marketing, along with the processes through which organizations analyze, plan, and implement marketing programs. Marketing is critical for the long-term success of any organization because this function ensures that it attracts, retains, and grows customers by creating, delivering, and communicating superior customer value. Students will learn about the marketing process and the range of marketing decisions that an organization must undertake to sell its products and services.
Cross-cultural management is necessary to give the student exposure to definitions and concepts of culture and cross-culture interactions in an increasingly connected and global environment.
