The MBOE program features a blended curriculum focused on operational excellence, analytics, leadership, supply chain and innovation. In addition, each student will complete a capstone project that's implemented in their organization. The curriculum is taught via lecture, group discussions, simulations, and immersive industry explorations.
The coursework is very hands on. There is a very high amount of integration between students’ jobs and the program – assignments often require students to use examples and anecdotes from their jobsand the capstone project, when it’s completed, will have numerous benefits for the students’ jobs and organizations.
In between class sessions, you will work on assignments, read case studies, apply what you have learned to your capstone project, work through online learning modules, and have opportunities to connect with faculty to receive assistance with course content.
The MBOE is a full-time program, and must be completed in that manner.
In order to better accommodate our students’ schedules and circumstances, we have added extra flexibility to attend virtually, as needed. As a cohort-based program, we see great benefit from attending in-person during the eight class sessions, however we understand things may arise that limit students attending in person. Please reach out to learn more about this option.
We have an Executive Summary that you can share with your employer that discusses the value of the MBOE both to you and your employer. It also details ROIs that students have experienced from their capstone projects. In addition, we would be happy to set up a time for our Academic Director/Director to speak with your employer to share more details about the program and what they can expect.
In order to be considered for the MBOE program, you must have a four year Bachelor's degree from an accredited university. In addition, our students must have at least 3 years of professional experience and be currently employed.
Typically, students use their current employer for their personalized capstone project. However, due to recent events with COVID-19, we are opening up the application to those who are currently unemployed and will work with those individuals to find an alternative project location.

Unfortunately scholarships are not available at this time. Since the program helps students create solutions for a current problem at their place of employment, we encourage companies to help financially sponsor their employees. If you'd like more information as to the benefits for sponsoring companies, please contact Laurie Spadaro at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 614-292-4209.
