Master in Business Administration
1. The Regular MBA Program
The MBA Regular Program is a thesis program designed for the young professional who has just started working for not more than five years. The program is committed to the professional in pushing his career goals and that of his organization forward. SPUQC, on the other hand, undertakes his transformation into making him an accountant, financial analyst, tax specialist, and a strategist rolled into one.
We believe taking up an MBA could be the best investment any professional can make. It builds competencies, develops the uncanny insight, and molds character. We don’t guarantee — and we never will — that our MBA program is a walk in the park. Why should it be?
Like any serious business endeavor, MBA requires effort. The MBA student takes the stance of a business owner who is like the captain of the ship with many moving parts. He is at the helm of bridge, ensuring safe navigation night and day. However, it is also physically impossible to monitor everything all the time. That’s why he needs a plan. He needs a mentor that will guide him through the squalls and storms at sea.
The challenge of the Regular MBA Program is in balancing one’s full-time work and the demands of the coursework. That, in itself, is a test of strength and determination.
2. The MBA Straight Program
This five-year full-time program of intense study features theoretical frameworks and skill building activities in a combined setting of school and industry immersion. A fast-paced, dynamic coursework is meant to fill the limited work experiences of the students enrolled in the program.
The MBA Straight Program draws in on the professional’s collective experience and SPUQC faculty’s expertise. Together, they bring tremendous value to startups, small and medium-sized enterprises, and established companies.
Today’s business environment has become increasingly more complex. With the advent of new internet technologies, project management, productivity tools, systems integration and business interactions that take place at varied time zones have only made an executive’s job more demanding.
This course will be held outside the conventional university classroom and will leverage immersion learning opportunities and experiences. Classroom teaching will be complemented by practical training and shadowing opportunities with local industry leaders. Students will participate in 250 hours internship program which will bring key concepts to life and afford students the opportunity to apply the knowledge gained during the baccalaureate course of the program.
