  • Eleven MBA Specializations: Our MBA is one of the most customizable programs in the area, offering students the opportunity to complete one or multiple specializations.

  • Study Abroad Opportunities: Each year we run trips to business hubs such as India and China, allowing students to earn course credit while gaining valuable international management experience. Suspended due to COVID-19.

  • Hands-On Trading Experience: Our Student Managed Fund started as a club in 2010 and is now organized as an Asset Management Practicum. Participants interact weekly with industry experts and gain valuable experience on Bloomberg terminals.
