The School of Business provides quality education to a diverse student body, our goal is to graduate students who are immediately effective in cutting-edge business organizations. Our undergraduate programs are of primary importance. We prepare our students for entry and mid-level managerial positions, entry-level professional specializations, and entrepreneurial roles. Further, we equip them with the capacity to identify their own goals and proactively to manage their life-long career prospects.
To prepare our students for these roles, we must assure their mastery of:
- Thinking skills: logical, critical and integrated analysis; the capacity to exercise good judgment; creative and nontraditional problem solving; proficiency in ethical reasoning;
- Discipline-specific knowledge and competencies: e.g., information technology and quantitative skills appropriate to problem-solving in a real-world setting;
- Communication skills: proficiency in oral, written, presentation, and distance communication;
- Change management: understanding and shaping the forces of change, including globalization and using this understanding to formulate, evaluate, and select from alternative strategies to achieve sustainable competitive advantage;
- Self-development: the capacity to engage in the effective self-management of lifelong learning to achieve continuous professional and personal growth.
