Walsh Launches New Online MBA Programs

What's New, 2012-08-02

Adds New Specialty in Entrepreneurship

 

Walsh University's DeVille School of Business is proud to announce the launch of a 12-month MBA program which can be taken either entirely online or in a traditional classroom setting, with specialties in Healthcare Management and Management. In addition, Walsh will offer a new MBA degree specialty in Entrepreneurship and a redesigned specialty in Marketing either of which can be completed in 24-months.

According to Dr. Michael Petrochuk, Director of the MBA Program, "Walsh's new curriculum leverages the ever-evolving business environment into the classroom through new core, specialty area and elective courses."

Students opting for the traditional in-class setting for any of the four specialties of Healthcare Management, Management, Entrepreneurship and Marketing will meet one night a week and one Saturday each month in 8-week segments.

The MBA Healthcare Management Specialization is designed to create a balance between business knowledge and the unique aspects and demands of the health care field. The MBA Healthcare Management Specialization provides future leaders with a wide range of competencies and skills needed to advance or develop their careers in the rewarding field of health care.

The MBA Management Specialization links current theory to practice and provides the knowledge a leader needs for productive interaction with others within the organization. The program develops and refines the qualitative leadership, quantitative, and analytical skills needed for a leader to plan effectively, organize, lead and control the activities of an organization.

The MBA Entrepreneurship Specialization is designed to prepare current and prospective business leaders with the competencies and skills needed to aptly identify and assess problems and create viable and sustainable business opportunities within an entrepreneurial environment. The MBA Entrepreneurship Specialization fosters an entrepreneurial spirit while developing and refining the qualitative leadership and quantitative skills necessary to apply sound business practices to emerging opportunities in the business environment.

The Marketing Specialization combines the traditional area of marketing communications with e-commerce and other emerging social marketing opportunities to provide an understanding of the role and importance of the media and technology in forming a unique focus. This specialization will prepare professionals to foresee changes in the marketplace and enable them to develop strategic- and customer-focused approaches in current and emerging businesses.
