As professionals adapt to a growing global business world, business schools must also adapt to train leaders who can effectively manage rapidly changing market conditions while making ethical business decisions.
In this issue of the Baylor Business Review, we focus on graduate business education. Along with our undergraduate degree program, Baylor’s Hankamer School of Business offers 14 graduate degrees (including specialized and joint degrees); two integrated graduate degree programs; and one PhD degree in Information Systems, our newest offering and the first doctoral degree awarded by the School.
These degree offerings align with our mission, which states “…produce business leaders with recognized integrity, superior theoretical knowledge and practical skills of modern global business developed through an experiential learning environment.”
You will read about graduate business alumni and how their degrees have served them within their careers, and you will learn how our Accounting program supports career development through promoting internships for graduate students, transforming them into professionals.
Aside from our full-time MBA program on campus, our Executive MBA (EMBA) program is offered in Dallas and Austin with Baylor professors traveling to teach courses at both locations. Accessible education for working professionals is key, and the Hankamer School of Business is doing its part in supporting this effort.
Our focus on ethics remains the foundation of business education at Hankamer. University students from across the nation travel to our campus to compete in the National MBA Case Competition in Ethical Leadership, which is part of our annual Dale P. Jones Business Ethics Forum.
Baylor’s graduate business programs continue to provide a relevant, integrated and inter-disciplinary curriculum in shaping superior business leaders.
