Sacred Heart University's Welch MBA degree program focuses on an Integrated Core of courses which examines all the functions within a business enterprise, as well as external factors. - You will work with faculty and local executives on current case studies involving hands-on learning which incorporate finance, marketing, operations, and accounting simultaneously. - Beyond the Integrated Core, quantitative competencies and leadership development, Welch MBA students may choose to study in one of four academic concentrations: Accounting, Business Analytics, Finance, Management, or Digital Marketing. - Candidates with business related academic backgrounds can complete the degree in just 36 credits. Candidates with other academic backgrounds are simply required to take two pre-requisite courses (9 credits).

We’ve removed the fluff and focused our program on the things you need to become a leader.
