Accelerated MBA students take their required business core courses together as a cohort (25 students). Students complete an MBA business core that includes content coverage in each of the basic functional areas of business: accounting, business law, finance, management, marketing, business technology, and strategic management, plus required courses in other critical areas such as leadership. Part of what also makes the Massey MBA different, though, is its threading of business ethics, entrepreneurial thinking, and international business concepts throughout the program. And Massey is one of only a handful of MBA programs in the U.S. that requires an international business study-abroad experience (MGT 6350) of each student prior to graduation. Currently, all AMBA students visit Cape Town, South Africa, recently voted by New York Times as the #1 destination to visit in 2014. Students will tour many visitor destinations while taking classes in conjunction with the University of Stellenbosch.
Accelerated MBA students have the ability to select from a wide range of graduate business electives which can be used to customize their degree programs. Similar to the PMBA program, Accelerated MBA students may choose from seven elective concentrations, including: accounting, entrepreneurship, finance, healthcare management, marketing or music business - or a student can choose a general business concentration that offers maximum flexibility by combining those electives that best fit one's desired career path.
