MBA and Management

Our graduate programs in business and management - the MBA and our new M.S. in innovation and strategic management - prepare professionals to successfully lead and manage within today's ever-evolving and increasingly global business environment.

Our programs develop leaders who are versed not only in finance, economics, accounting and human resources, but also ethics, organizational behavior and strategic management. In keeping with the University's mission, we prepare them to face the challenges of balancing fiscal accountability with a strong commitment to the well being of their employees and their community.

We accomplish this by integrating theoretical coursework with the practical experience of our highly qualified faculty. And, small class sizes allow us to work closely with students to tailor our program to meet their individual career goals.

With courses available at our Newport campus, the Center for Adult Education in Warwick and online, our programs offer students a flexible schedule and an opportunity to accelerate the completion of their degree.
