The university seeks to maintain a supportive environment where students are encouraged to find and develop their talents for the benefit of our society at large.
MU offers master’s degree in business administration. This program is designed to reflect the most current professional trends in each field. MU is authorized to issue degrees and operate its programs in accordance with the State of California guidelines.
This mission is achieved by meeting the following goals, which are the cornerstones of the academic program:
Higher Order Thinking and Critical Analysis: Students will develop and demonstrate the ability to think critically, analytically, and creatively, and will apply this ability to the tasks of collecting, analyzing, and evaluating data; formulating conclusions; and developing new and important ideas. In the process, they will have demonstrated the oral and written communication skills needed to apply and contribute to organizational, scientific, and technological knowledge.
Global Understanding and Multicultural Perspective: Students develop the value of diversity and realize how to apply their various strengths into achieving common goals, as well as increasing the awareness, knowledge and appreciation of both the diversity and commonality of cultures. This effort will require the construction of new global relationships from unique and disparate economic, historical, political, geographic, and environmental sources.
Professional Management. Students will develop and demonstrate expertise in the field of business administration and technology with an emphasis on strategic leadership, strategic formulation, organizational design, and human resource management within a global context. Such mastery will be accomplished through both formal study and various experiential forms of learning, further enhanced by research and practice. As part of their growth, students will develop and articulate the ethical standards which will guide their professional and personal lives.
Each of the University’s goals is activated through these instructional objectives which students apply in their studies.
Subject Competency: Students will become conversant with course content material and hone their research and investigative skills through appropriate learning activities. Through this intellectual growth process, students learn to value life-long learning as essential to their own personal growth and develop a philosophy of life that helps nurture the entrepreneurial spirit and concern for the community and environment.
Skills Mastery: Students learn the requisite professional and communication skills for careers in business and the world of technology. Computer literacy is essential in this process to access professional literature through online services and to gain familiarity with key references in selected fields of study.
Global Understanding: Students, in all courses of study, master the key concepts and develop the necessary attitudes and skills to persevere within the diverse cultural, religious, and social parameters of the world.
