Further, for a smooth enrollment process, CSU Global does not require a Graduate Record Examinations General Test (GRE) or a Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT).
“Recognizing that an MBA is one of the most sought-after credentials for executive-level positions, our goal is to provide a high-quality and customizable online option for learners at all stages of their professional lives,” said Dr. Deb Sepich, MBA Program Director at CSU Global. “This degree is ideal for students looking to hone their business skills and advance their careers. In designing the program, it was critical for us to focus on problem-based learning, such as applied simulations and case studies, to give students hands-on experiences.”
To tailor their program for added value and targeted expertise, students can specialize in a specific area that aligns with their professional goals and personal interests. Current specialization areas include Organizational Leadership, Project Management, Healthcare Administration, Accounting, Finance, Cyber Security, and Information Technology.
Graduates of the program will be able to coordinate strategic goals, steward resources, apply analytical skills, solve organizational challenges, assess financial performance and business scenarios, use quantitative and qualitative analysis tools, formulate actionable business plans, and navigate cultural complexities.
