WE MEAN BUSINESS

To be successful, leaders must be able to leverage these tools to set and adjust strategies to manage projects and resources.
At the School of Business, graduate management programs put special emphasis on the application of technology in real-world business settings to solve complex problems and seize new opportunities. Whether you are a recent college graduate or a technical professional with years of experience in the workplace, Stevens has a program designed with your career aspirations in mind.
The MBA is the flagship graduate program at the School of Business, and is available in two flavors:
The traditional MBA is for students with limited work experience who want to take on management responsibilities. Courses emphasize the use of analytics in making effective decisions, an understanding of the roles accounting and finance play in managing operations, and the ways leaders encourage entrepreneurship and agility in the workplace.
The EMBA (MBA for experienced professionals) is a weekend program for students who have been in the workplace for at least five years. Students enjoy high-level learning that prepares them for top management roles through a curriculum that emphasizes the ability to think strategically about both their business and the technology that's changing how executives approach finance, marketing, entrepreneurship, decision-making and more.
For technical professionals, the ability to climb the corporate ladder often depends upon becoming familiar with the language of business. The Technology Management degree offers an immersion into business concepts like finance, economics, accounting and marketing, allowing these professionals to understand how their roles fit into the broader organizational context and preparing them to take on management roles.
Technology’s disruption upon finance has been dramatic, and few master’s-level programs prepare professionals to manage the sweeping changes that will continue to reshape this industry. Regulation and compliance, cybersecurity, risk management, and technology-driven opportunities are at the heart of the Stevens Finance program.
