Each full-time MBA class at the Carroll School of Management is comprised of approximately 100. Students are assigned to cohorts of 50 classmates, with whom they take the modules and courses in the required curriculum. Experiential learning projects are required in both the first and second years.
Courses begin with an examination of the ethical and legal responsibilities of leadership and an introduction to the ways effective managers add value in their organizations. In the ensuing weeks and months, students build a broad foundation of business knowledge and capabilities. To complete their first-year course work, students choose four specialization electives to add depth to their understanding of their chosen discipline as well as participating in a Consulting Project.
Students strengthen their foundation of essential skills during year two modules, while furthering their understanding of strategy, the critical role of information systems, and the challenges of managing in a global economy. In addition, they continue to choose three additional specialization elective courses and participate in a Business Plan Project.
Carroll has not published in its employment report its top employers, preferring to list all of the firms that hired the school’s graduates.
