The mission of the International Master of Business Administration program is to help managers gain a distinct advantage in their profession, whether they are in industrial, financial, global, government, or non-profit institutions. To achieve this goal, Stratford University offers a broad-based program curriculum which strikes a balance between technical training and practical problem-solving founded on current management theories and approaches. It is complemented by case analysis, company/industry studies, business games, and other experiential learning methods. International business students engage in an intensive study in current management concepts and techniques through a core curriculum covering the functional areas in business as well as analytical decision-making. Students can then gain additional functional expertise by selecting specialization courses.
