Fresh off a $25 million leadership gift from Thomas D. O’Malley ’63 and the appointment of Donald Gibson, Ph.D. as its new dean, the O’Malley School of Business has an MBA program designed with the working professional in mind. It consists of a set of evening and online courses, allowing individuals to complete their MBA degree in as soon as 18 months.
The MBA program features a curriculum that explores decision-making and risk management, leadership and social justice, ethical behavior in business and the formation of organizations in competitive environments.
Students can complete the 36-credit, 12 course O’Malley School of Business MBA on a full-time or part-time basis, typically within two years. Courses are offered on campus and online. For students whose undergraduate degree is not in a business-related discipline, the O’Malley School of Business offers four foundation courses – accounting, business statistics, economics, and management – to prepare them for the MBA program.
“I affectionately refer to my graduate degree as an ‘MBA with a soul,’ says Michelle Ragusa McBain ’04, ’19 (MBA). “It’s an ethical MBA – where learning is grounded in the Lasallian Catholic traditions, which are so much more important than just economics.” As part of her MBA program, McBain traveled to Peru to research sustainable economic development solutions for people living within the Amazon rainforest. “If you want to go to a school that can deliver both a wonderful academic tradition and a promise of helping people and bettering communities, Manhattan College is the place for you.”
Interested individuals are encouraged to apply online and explore the MBA website.
