Charlotte Saturday MBA Curriculum

2015 CLT SAT OrientationThe Charlotte Saturday MBA curriculum is designed to provide you with the ability to approach and analyze challenges from a wide range of perspectives in order to achieve holistic solutions. The cohort/team-based approach to the MBA means that all members of an entering class will graduate together at the conclusion of the two-year program, while learning supportively from each other throughout the program.

The lockstep curriculum emphasizes broad-based leadership and management skills that are both strategic and global, while integrating the spectrum of functional areas to deepen your knowledge across disciplines, including finance, operations, marketing, entrepreneurship and information technology. To add to your skill set, you can choose electives to hone your interests and further define your career path.
