Gain the knowledge and skills you need to advance in your current career, chart a new direction for yourself or pursue your particular interest in core areas of business, including human resources, accounting, economics, finance, law and marketing. In classes with busy, working adults just like yourself, you'll explore key areas such as organizational behavior, business ethics, communication strategies, and decision-making models. You'll improve your skills in critical thinking, problem solving, presentation and communication as you apply business theory to management practice and acquire the academic foundation for future graduate work.
The time required to complete your degree depends on the number of courses you take each term, which you can determine according to your personal and professional responsibilities. With new courses beginning at Curry every eight weeks, your progress can be as fast or as flexible as you choose.
To model the real world organizational practice of using technology in daily communication, the core required business management courses are delivered in a hybrid format. Hybrid courses combine face-to-face and online learning: some may alternate weeks meeting in-class, and others may meet weekly for a shorter period of time. Regardless of the format, you will discover that hybrid learning brings more flexibility to your academic schedule, while providing you the opportunity to personally meet your faculty and peers to strengthen your academic, social and professional networks.
