Program Description

In addition to developing an understanding of the sophisticated nature and inter-relationship among the basic functional areas of business, the MBA Program will emphasize executive skills development. The primary areas include Leadership, Communications, Decision Making, Self-awareness, Analysis and Synthesis and Critical Thinking.

Program Overview

The Program will utilize a holistic and strategic approach to dealing with organizational problems. Thus, functional areas of business will be considered in the context of the organizational whole, while maintaining an external and international perspective and providing a multi-stakeholder rather than a single-interest advocacy approach.

Further, a strategic, long-run perspective will be stressed rather than a short-run, tactical view. Within individual courses, as well as throughout the program, a balance between cognitive and effective learning will be sought. The entire Program will give primacy to matters of ethics and values, as well as to a concern for the rights and responsibilities of business organizations within the context of the broader society of which they are part of.

At DeSales University, you'll find a positive approach to life. Maybe it's the friendly, unpretentious nature of our students, faculty, and staff, or the upbeat spiritual perspective of the Oblates of Saint Francis de Sales, who have shaped the University and its character.
