The Mays Executive MBA Program equips todayâ€™s working leaders with the skills and knowledge they need to excel in a rapidly changing organizational environment. .
In an environment tailored for the seasoned working professional, participants use their own experiences to explore the concepts and strategies needed to meet the real-world challenges facing today's organizations. Classes are carefully selected to reflect a mix of backgrounds and responsibilities. Faculty act as facilitators, guiding participants in the lively exploration of fundamental and innovative concepts.
It is an environment that welcomes the challenging new questions that arise when fundamental business concepts are tested by actual experience.
By design, the program's curriculum reflects issues critical to the future of business management today. This focus benefits both individuals and their organizations from the outset of the 18-month program.
Presented as a series of integrated modules, the Mays Executive MBA Program emphasizes the interrelationship of all functional areas of business. Since all organizations ultimately share a common goal â€“ creating and sustaining value â€“ each module revolves around how meeting this challenge is accomplished in today's dynamic business environment.
The overall theme of "Managing the Value Creation Process" is addressed
through examination of the competencies that characterize the successful
manager of the 21st century:
- Problem solving
- Strategic action
- Global awareness
- Financial acumen
Input from class participants and examination of current business issues are defining elements of the Mays Executive MBA Program curriculum. Modules are tailored to the specific needs of each class. Through discussion and interaction, participants learn innovative approaches to problems and opportunities.
Throughout the program, participants are encouraged to relate current areas of study and discussion to situations within their organization. Not only does this make the program content more relevant, it also provides immediate benefit both to the participant and to individual organizations.
Three broad and interrelated activities determine how effectively
organizations create and sustain value today:
- Anticipating and stimulating customer demand for the products and
services produced by the organization.
- Delivering products and services at lower cost and higher quality than
- Influencing the external social and political environment within which
the organization operates.
The Mays Executive MBA Program offers seasoned management professionals unsurpassed insight into meeting these challenges.
