Recently, a Franklin team finished first, winning the World Champions distinction from among 491 teams representing 51 colleges and universities around the globe.
Customize your MBA with a focus area
While the broad nature of the MBA curriculum brings tremendous versatility to your professional toolkit, you can choose to tailor your MBA to align with your career interests and aspirations. The completion of a focus area requires up to two additional courses in addition to MBA requirements. Choose from:
Human Resources: Build on the knowledge you gained in the MBA’s HR management class with one additional course in organizational development. In this six-week course, you’ll explore how a strategic approach to planned change impacts an organization’s productivity, competitiveness and culture.
Marketing: Add a digital marketing strategies course to the required MBA course in Marketing Management for a focus in Marketing. Creating a mix of tried-and-true marketing channels with emerging options is a formula for success. The digital strategies course equips you to analyze the impact of online campaigns on your promotional strategy.
Organizational Psychology: Pursuing a focus in Organizational Psychology requires two additional 6-week courses that not only enhance your learning, but also provide an opportunity for self-discovery. The introductory course provides an overview of business and psychology individually, as a necessary element for understanding the challenges and opportunities that arise when the two disciplines are integrated. The second course takes a psychological approach to the relationship between creativity, innovation and change.
