Strategic thinking, leadership, and global business are fundamental to the Foster MBA core. Relative to other programs, the Foster MBA program spends more time on strategy and global business in the core—both directly, in components on competitive strategy, global strategic management, and macroeconomics; and indirectly, in the choice of cases and projects. The first year of the MBA program offers an integrated core of fundamental business concepts, skills, and tools. A team of top-notch faculty work closely together to develop and deliver modules of varying length for a solid foundation in the individual subjects—accounting, finance, marketing, operations management, and strategy—and an understanding of how they interrelate. During the second year, students can customize the program to focus on their personal career objectives, without being bound to a single career track. Electives allow students to develop greater expertise in the areas directly related to their post-MBA degree career, while increasing their capacity to take on cross-functional assignments. In addition to elective coursework, students complete final core classes in ethics and macroeconomics.
