What is Cohort Study?

As a student in the Curry College MBA Program, you will be part of a cohort group. That means that the same students will be in all of your classes for the entire program, start to finish. Cohort group learning has proven to be very effective for adult learners because it creates a community of professionals who can study together, provide support, discuss common on-the-job problems, and offer networking opportunities.

Fall 2018 Schedule

Classes are delivered in a hybrid format - a blend of in-person discussions and online activities.  A new cohort will begin at our Milton and Plymouth campuses in Fall 2018.

Themes:

  • Leadership and Ethics - The qualities of strong leadership in our constantly changing world are far more complex than they were just a decade ago. The Curry College MBA Program is built on a definition of leadership that encompasses more than the basic textbook philosophies of leadership that and management. This theme teaches the fundamentals and requisite skill sets of effective leadership in a global environment and does so within an over-arching framework of social responsibility.

  • Strategic Planning - Visionary leaders see the big picture, the end-results, well before they implement a business plan. They know how to communicate and structure their ideas into logical steps that utilize their resources, respect social and cultural boundaries, and establish best practices with colleagues, customers, and suppliers. The goal of this themes is to teach students how to think strategically in a global environment - how to recognize opportunity, how to establish what needs to be done, how to determine who needs to be involved, how to manage effectively, and how to honor cultural differences.

  • Decision Making Tools - Although technology has opened up world-wide business possibilities, the fact that it is constantly changing often forces global managers to make decisions based on uncertainty. Therefore, to reduce the risk of failure, it is essential, particularly in a global marketplace, to have a well-rounded understanding and knowledge of all elements involved. This theme examines decision-making tools in the context of e-commerce, customer service, and global business issues in an effort to empower analytical thinking and reasoning skills.

  • Problem Solving - Effective global managers are problem sharp-shooters. Problem solving skills result from a firm understanding of the basic tenets of global business practices and are further refined through exposure to actual problem solving strategies. This theme relies on a mix of case studies as well as on real-life problems presented by global managers of successful area businesses.


Competencies:

  • Critical Thinking: Demonstrated ability to recognize & gather data, analyze information and synthesize for creative endeavors and problem solving.
  • Communications: Demonstrates ability to share ideas and findings clearly in written and oral expression
