Dominican MBA Program

A Dominican MBA will provide students with the skills and knowledge today’s businesses, non-profits and government agencies demand in their employees: the ability to make leadership decisions, a deep understanding of how to develop socially and economically sustainable practices, and a global perspective.

Dominican’s classroom experience allows students to interact with their peers and faculty at an intensive level. Faculty emphasize academic rigor with real world relevance; placing a priority on strong teaching and providing opportunities for students to discuss their assignments and research in a way that allows them to apply what they learn in the classroom today into the workplace tomorrow.

A Comprehensive Curriculum

The Dominican MBA’s comprehensive curriculum combines an interdisciplinary set of core business courses with forward-looking specializations in leadership, sustainability or global business, and resume-building experiential learning opportunities. The program includes:

  • A 31-unit common core that gives you a thorough grounding in accounting, finance, marketing, operations and other business disciplines.
  • Included in the common core, a three-unit strategic management capstone course that integrates all previous coursework into a major project.
  • Also included in the common core, a four-unit Global Consulting Practicum during which students will research the strategic needs and concerns of a major international organization. Students will then present consulting recommendations in person during a 10-day in-country visit.
  • Specialty coursework that addresses the current trends and theories affecting the global marketplace. These courses are all anchored in the foundation of our expertise in global business, leadership and sustainability.

    The Dominican MBA focuses on the leadership, team-building, communication and negotiation skills every professional needs to be successful.

Graduate degree candidates must maintain a grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 ('B') or higher in the graduate program and may have only two final grades of 'C' in their coursework at the time of graduation.  Any grade below 'C" (2.0) will not satisfy the graduation requirement for a graduate degree. Students may repeat courses in which they received a grade of 'C' or below. If a student repeats a course in which they received a grade of 'C' or below, the most recently earned letter grade will determine whether a degree requirement has been met. All the letter grades for all the registered courses during the graduate program will be listed on the transcript.
