By drawing on expertise from multiple domains, students learn creative problem solving

In the EM Track, classroom lectures, faculty mentors, and cross-functional teams promote a multi-disciplinary approach to addressing business issues. The track is highly flexible within the MBA program, allowing students to tailor their coursework to their interests. No more than 50% of the MBA credit requirements are necessary to qualify for an EM Track certificate.

Building upon the broad training provided by the core management requirements, the EM track requires electives in Marketing, Operations, Strategy, and Finance to deepen cross-functional expertise.  Students choose additional electives from these domains or other diverse offerings such as Management Practices, Industries and Sectors, Business Analytics, Product Development and Innovation, and Global Management. A recommended set of electives, linked to specific careers, is intended to guide students and act as a signal to potential employers that the student has completed highly relevant coursework.
