The business leadership specialization focuses on shaping leaders who maximize opportunities, adapt quickly, and improve human resource management and growth. The certificate is a subset of the specialization, providing a quicker turnaround and implementation for business professionals who wish to learn a new skill. The certificate’s credits can also be applied to the MBA.

The sustainability specialization shapes leaders who can predict, locate, enhance and align sustainability in their strategic planning efforts.

MBA students can now specialize in seven areas, including analytics, business leadership, finance, health services administration, marketing, operations and supply chain management, and sustainability.

The two new specialization programs will be offered on campus and online asynchronous, starting in August of 2023. They are also stackable, as the offered courses may be used to pursue an additional degree, specialization(s) and/or certification(s) at the business school or across campus.
