    A unique feature of the masters in business administration program is that it replaces the traditional course-by-course masters curriculum with theme-based modules. By blending business disciplines that are traditionally kept separate (like marketing, finance, and business law), you will develop the “big picture” view of how disciplines come together in a real business environment. You will also have an opportunity in your final semester to choose a concentration in Entrepreneurship/Social Entrepreneurship, Organizational Leadership, or Project Management. The program culminates in a real world final project where your team works with a company or non-profit to solve a business problem, market a new product or service, or develop a strategy for future growth.

    The Master in business administration at Mount Saint Mary’s University program is focused on today's dynamic, fluid, and complex global business environment that requires successful business leaders to be able to understand and respond to patterns and market conditions in constant flux.
