New MBA Concentrations Offered in Economics, Entrepreneurship
In fall 2014, the University of St. Thomas Cameron School of Business will add two concentrations, entrepreneurship and economics, to the seven existing concentrations in the Master of Business Administration: accounting, ethics, international business, finance, health care administration, marketing, and management information systems.
To earn the MBA degree, students at Cameron must complete nine core business courses and three elective courses within a concentration. The school offers multiple elective course options within each concentration, and students select three electives of their choice from the courses within a concentration. Students appreciate the customizability, which allows each student to tailor the program to align with individual interests.
MBA with an entrepreneurship concentration
The MBA with an entrepreneurship concentration will prepare students for planning, launching, growing and leading a business. The concentration is comprised of electives that address the challenges faced by the entrepreneur and includes new electives created for the program.
Courses in the entrepreneurship concentration cover topics ranging from business model innovation, systems project management, human resource management and the entrepreneurial process.
“The courses in the entrepreneurship concentration equip students with the critical business competencies necessary to identify opportunities and skillfully address those opportunities,” said Dr. Beena George, dean of the Cameron School of Business. “This training will help them whether they wish to start their own firm, contribute to the revitalization of a large multinational firm or address the needs of underserved groups in global markets.”
MBA with an economics concentration
The MBA with an economics concentration is designed to prepare students for careers in the private and government sectors that require solid analytical skills. The courses in the concentration are intended to provide students with an understanding of national and global economic activity, domestic and global financial markets, the growing transnational character of business, and the use of financial economics and its role in business decisions.
Courses in the economics concentration cover topics ranging from macroeconomics, financial institutions and markets, public finance and managerial economics.
Inspired by the Basilian Fathers’ motto of goodness, discipline and knowledge, the Cameron School of Business provides a comprehensive, high-quality, ethically oriented business education to a diverse student body enabling graduates to serve as leaders of faith and character in a global economy.
