Educating inclusive business leaders.

While learning in a team-focused environment, the Full-Time MBA Program fosters a diverse and inclusive community of varying backgrounds. These diverse backgrounds and experiences add to our well-rounded curriculum and contribute towards the growth of future business leaders.

Full-Time MBA Program Commitment

holi celebration with students

We understand that inclusivity, cultural sensitivity, and unconditional equity are no longer leadership best practices, they are foundational. We seek out and celebrate diverse voices and experiences because they fuel innovation, creativity, and success on campus and in business.

By earning your MBA through the Broad College of Business, you will be immersed in an inclusive community of peers and faculty that will challenge you to solve future business problems with a different angle and an emphasis on equity.

Facilitate and sustain an inclusive environment for Full-Time MBA students, faculty and staff, and to acknowledge and celebrate differences within the program, as lived experiences energize innovation and challenge geographical, cultural, and historical barriers.

Mission

Empower the voice of the Full-Time MBA Program by:

  • Engaging in cultural competency conversations, listening, and giving thoughtful attention to our population’s identities (race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, sexual orientation/identity, ability, religion, public service, etc.). Furthermore, raising awareness on how these identities interact with each other.
  • Developing a culture of excellence through continuing education of important issues and causes of our community members’ identities. Then, promoting critical thinking skills on implicit, cognitive, and systematic bias.
  • Using our platform to advance current systems and structures in business education and curriculum in the Broad College of Business.
  • Cultivate accountability through transparency of processes and data-driven decisions.

When we engage, develop, and advance our community, we facilitate the personal, professional, and academic growth of everyone.
