Student Learning Outcomes
The DeSales MBA program is intended to provide students with a sophisticated level of understanding of the basic functional areas of business, as well as an appreciation of the role of business in our pluralistic society and the international community in which it exists. The ethical dimension of personal and corporate behavior and decision-making will be stressed throughout the program. The program will achieve this by having the students successfully:
1 explain how domestic and global organizations, as complex systems, function within a broader social, political, legal, technical, and economic environment;
2 analyze and describe the subjective, value-laden, ethical dimensions of executive behavior and decision-making within the context of Christian Humanist traditions of the University;
3 explain the importance of people management, and the need to develop/enhance personal leadership skills;
4 describe from theoretical and operational perspectives, how the various functions of business management are integrated;
5 prove proficiency, at a graduate level, in written and oral communication skills;
6 demonstrate a graduate-level competency in the use of analytical tools and techniques necessary for effective decision-making and problem-solving in complex organizations.
