Teaching MBA Courses
Our MBA courses are hands on, experientially oriented approach to learning. The emphasis is on students participating in a number of varied activities before, during and after the seated part of the class. Individual and group case studies, exercises, games, discussions, simulations and other activities are examples of the types of activities. All grades are determined by the student’s ability to demonstrate her/his command of the class material based through these activities; tests are not administered in any of the classes.
This approach is based on a constructionist theory to learning where students generate knowledge and meaning from their experiences. Knowledge is internalized by learners. When learners assimilate information they incorporate the new experience into the theory being studied in the class.
Adult learners are motivated to learn when they have a need to do so. The curriculum and the delivery system must be of practical value and fit their professional goals. Learning outcomes for the MBA in terms of skill development include: problem-solving, critical thinking, presentation and public speaking and research. Learning outcomes that apply to organizational development include: decision making techniques, small group interactions, systems management skills, statistical methodologies for information evaluation and management of human resources
