This redesigned program was based upon feedback and consultations with current business leaders and alumni in the field to adjust to what working professionals really need to become future industry leaders.
Abe Helou, dean of the College of Business and Public Management, feels the program is already providing more options for students.
“With this program, the student is in charge,” Helou said. “The MBAX degree maintains strong academic rigor with an even better opportunity for students to customize to their academic needs. It is also our goal to ensure that they are supported every step of the way.”
Now, students may tap into select subjects of choice and explore their preferred curriculum through independent learning modules, endless concentration combinations, and more. Fewer prerequisite courses are required and electives have been increased to provide more learning options for students in specialized business fields.
Students also have the freedom to take classes in ways that best fit their schedules, including options to learn online, through hybrid models, and with in-person instruction at campuses across Southern California. Core coursework will still cover the three main business branches: finance, marketing, and operations.
The program is tailored to those with at least three years of professional experience who want to take the next step toward leadership positions.
Graduates of the MBAX program work in executive-level positions across multiple fields, both in Southern California and beyond.
