Description

Program Rational

Increasingly, students graduating from Science, Engineering and Health Science programs have varied their career paths. Regardless of their future career trajectories, it is becoming evident that students require grounding in professional practices and thinking. The skills associated with understanding markets, organizational behavior, operational planning, financing and strategic planning are transferable across industry, government and academic ventures alike. The miniMBA program is intended to bring professionals from industry to introduce students to topics and skills that will help them become better thought leaders and researchers both in and out of the lab.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the program students should be able to:

  • Articulate a basic understanding of a range of industry concepts including: markets and market segmentation, budgeting, strategic planning and project management

  • Show a familiarity with high-level notions of Microeconomics and Macroeconomics;

  • Demonstrate a basic familiarity with accounting and finance principles;

  • Display strategic thinking around resource management and operations.

Program Overview

The miniMBA program provides students with broad overviews on a range of topics designed to help improve their understanding of business and management concepts that are transferable across a range of career paths.

Each lecture is composed of three segments:

  • A lecture instructed by an industry professional;

  • A team-based case analysis or activity, which will utilize knowledge and techniques covered in the lecture;

  • A discussion of the different solutions that teams came up with.
