The Greehey MBA is for values-driven leaders who want to transform their enterprises, institutions and communities by positively transforming themselves. A 16-month, cohort-based program, its small class sizes afford you personalized attention, one-on-one faculty interaction and the opportunity for peer-to-peer mentoring. Self-assessment exercises, goal-setting activities and individual and group projects provide just the right context for learning, application and practice. In the process, students develop close working relationships that will benefit them and their organizations throughout their careers. Saturday lab sessions accommodate working professionals and focus on essential skills. Advanced Business Skills Labs (ABS-Labs) held on selected Saturdays throughout the semester fall into three categories. Values-Driven Leadership Labs (V-Labs) focus on fundamentals of ethical leadership, including strategies for aligning individual behavior and organizational culture, the development of advanced behavioral skills and familiarity with contemporary business issues and strategies. Technical Labs (Tech-Labs) focus on essential skills such as the use of spreadsheets and other software tools for budgeting, data analytics, simulations and decision support. Fitness Labs (Fit-Labs) focus on individual and group strategies to develop physical and financial fitness, and an inquiry into the personal meaning of work in ways that will enhance performance and provide a healthy work-life balance. A built-in, concentrated international experience. Today, every facet of business is touched by the global economy, and no professional can operate successfully without an understanding of this context. The Greehey MBA program takes students to global destinations for a concentrated learning experience during which they are exposed to diverse business cultures and learn from local experts. In addition, the trip is short enough to fit within the average professional’s allotted vacation time. Wait list and post-graduate support activities. St. Mary’s believes that education begins the moment a student is accepted and lasts a lifetime. Students on The Greehey MBA wait list can begin to form relationships with other students and start transforming their careers before they ever step foot in a classroom. Graduates of the program remain part of the St. Mary’s family for lifelong learning opportunities, including invitations to networking events and other value-added activities. Social Innovation Workshop. During the summer, Greehey MBA students have an opportunity to come up with ideas in the context of social innovation and develop them into viable business concepts that also accomplish a social purpose. We provide a “real world” experience where formulation and presenting of lean business models occurs under severe time constraints. The Greehey MBA for values-driven leaders seeks to develop competent individuals for responsible leadership positions in any organization or enterprise in the context of ethical leadership, corporate social responsibility, sustainability and social entrepreneurship. By design this program is a lock-step, cohort-based, curriculum experience.
