disciplines and prepares them for general management roles"*.

Developing business expertise
Our MBA provides an additional advantage for students from nonbusiness
backgrounds. By earning an MBA degree, you increase your
practical knowledge in the eld of business administration. Even after
completing your MBA, you can continue your doctorate in any other
discipline. An MBA will give you the "chance to develop a wide range
of general business knowledge and a broad base of technical skills in
a relatively short period of time"*

skill-set taught in MBA provides you with the hands-on training
for dealing with real work business problems. Eventually, you can

businesses started by MBAs is about 50 percent less than the standard
failure rate’*
