The New York Institute of Technology (NYIT)- Vancouver campus M.B.A. Advantage: Giving Students the Tools They Need to Succeed in the 21st-Century Global Marketplace
The New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) School of Management’s transformational M.B.A. program reflects a best-practices approach to quality management education. “Reflective of MiM [Master’s in Management] programs emerging in the United States and prevalent in Europe, Asia, and Australia, our M.B.A. program provides a cutting-edge learning experience that rivals those of the world’s most innovative business schools,” says School of Management Dean Jess Boronico. The program’s unique features include:
• Scope of Coverage: A unique modular structure, including 12 1.5-credit courses and one 3-credit capstone (supplemented by electives or concentration courses) increases the scope of coverage, allowing students to see the whole picture.
• Incremental Knowledge: The curriculum is designed to advance a student’s depth of knowledge by excluding material that overlaps with the undergraduate experience. This approach results in graduates whose knowledge and exposure surpass that of students in traditional M.B.A. programs; for students without a business background, the school also offers a portfolio of business foundation courses that can be completed prior to enrolling in the M.B.A. program core.
• Taxonomy: The program’s emphasis on advanced level conceptual foundations and analytical skill development prepares students to enter the workforce and advance rapidly toward higher-order decision-making positions.
• Leadership: The M.B.A. program has a goal of ensuring that graduates can “lead effectively, especially in an uncertain business environment.” This is facilitated by case studies, co-curricular seminars and workshops on personal development and leadership, and team exercises.
• Diversity: Attracting students from more than 100 nations and delivering its curriculum worldwide in English, the program ensures the significant consideration of global perspectives. Moreover, the curriculum is contextualized so that localized business priorities form the context of the course content.
