Master of Business Administration Management and Leadership

(HEGIS 0506)

The 36-credit M.B.A. Program in Management & Leadership prepares students to effectively manage and lead in today’s complex workforce. There is a rich body of speculative and research literature in managerial theory. Training in this theory offers an excellent preparation for a student who plans to specialize in one area of business after graduation. The Master of Business Administration (MBA) programs at Dowling College provide an educational foundation for responsible business leadership. Students develop a professional point of view in the science of management with respect to organization, operation, administration and control of a business enterprise; a decision-making capability through application of quantitative tools as a key supplement to their own value judgments; the capability of utilizing knowledge within the complex environment of our society; and, experience in business affairs applying that knowledge. Emphasis is placed on creating a sense of responsibility to qualify the student as a prospective manager whose mission is to assume social responsibility, as well as to serve his or her own economic interest.

The Master of Business Administration programs at Dowling College are accredited by the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE) and have been approved by and duly registered with the New York State Education Department.
