The Poole College of Management MBA: What You Need To Know

In the full-time MBA program at Poole’s College of Management, students learn by doing – working on real projects for companies, gaining a real-world perspective and experience that can be immediately. The program emphasizes the management of technology. Students take an integrated core curriculum, with a focus on technology, business processes, and practical applications in a collaborative learning environment. In addition, students choose a specialized concentration and open electives to strengthen their skill set.

Through simulations, case studies, and projects, students learn from real-world examples and experiences. Both full and part-time students take a course in managerial effectiveness, which emphasizes communication skills, networking, negotiations, team skills, ethics, and social responsibility.

The technology focus of the program comes from three sources. First, all students take core courses related to technology, including strategy, operations, and managing people in a high-tech environment. Even courses in traditional management subjects, such as economics and marketing, have a technology slant through the choice of cases and projects used in the course. Second, in most of the concentrations, students can take courses in technical fields, such as industrial engineering and computer science. Third, most students have a strong technology background and seek careers with high-tech companies.

The school’s academic concentrations include BioSciences Management, Entrepreneurship & Technology Commercialization, Financial Management, Innovation Management, Marketing Management, Services Management & Consulting, and Supply Chain Management.
