Inspired by real-world business challenges.
As long as the MBA has been offered at the University of Baltimore, we've kept the needs of business in mind. Our program was built with the advice and expertise of the Baltimore business community, our esteemed alumni, and current and prospective students and faculty.
In higher education, sometimes course curriculum is created behind closed doors—theory does not always go hand in hand with practice. Our approach is different. We consult with business leaders from some of the area's top companies. We survey students and alumni. We hold focus groups. We conduct secondary research. It is essential that the UB MBA meet the needs of the students we serve and the business community that hires them.
We recognize that there is a strong demand for the MBA. Any 21st-century graduate business degree, however, must be applicable to a fast-paced, globally scaled business environment. It must reach a student population that is connected via technology like no other generation in history. We encourage our students to blaze a trail in business and the community at large—and that requires an MBA that is as flexible as it is applicable.
