Program Learning Outcomes Master Programs

Across all master programs, we seek to develop innovative and visionary business professionals, who take leadership in economic and social progress, and who are dedicated to the highest ethical standards. The three values of vision, leadership, and responsibility are common to all master programs. In defining the set of Program Learning Objectives, the three values of vision, leadership, and responsibility are reflected in common PLOs 1 through 3. The only exception is in EMBA where we pursue transformational leadership rather than general leadership skills.

Across programs, we also have a differentiation of PLOs in accordance with program-specific objectives. Of primary importance in the MBA program is to improve strategic collaboration skills in team settings as well as the ability to integrate knowledge across multi-disciplinary fields. The EMBA program is uniquely characterized by its focus on transformational leadership. The MIM program seeks to instill internationalism on all students. Finally, the MFIN program seeks to enhance students’ technical and quantitative skills.

Below is the resulting list of seven PLOs. The last column indicates in which master programs the PLOs are applicable (ALL refers to all programs, namely MBA, EMBA, MIM, and MFIN).
