A flexible curriculum

General info | Milwaukee campus | Kohler

The newly designed Marquette MBA curriculum is inspired by discussions with students, alums, faculty and most importantly, the business community. We have streamlined the curriculum by integrating courses across all of the functional areas of business. Our program focuses on business literacy, strategic decision making and leadership. Our Jesuit tradition means all of this is rooted in an ethical and global perspective.

Students take courses that make sense for their background and for their career path.  Those who don’t have a business undergraduate degree will take two integrated business essentials classes where they will learn the language and functional areas of business and how to apply these concepts to their work place challenges.  All MBA students will take classes in decision making, ethical perspectives, strategy and leadership.  Students then have the flexibility to further explore issues in-depth by completing advanced core and elective courses in particular functional cross-disciplinary areas. While a specialization is not required, students have a number of areas of specialization to choose from. Students are encouraged to take classes that are not in their comfort zone.  We want students to challenge themselves and explore new areas.
