Special Features of our Program    

Project-Based Learning

Students in the MBA program consult with local businesses and organizations to improve their business processes and measure and improve their sustainability.

One Course at a Time

go deep and focus

At MUM you take one full-time course each month, instead of juggling 4-5 subjects at once. This helps you do the following: give your full attention to each class, and go deeper into knowledge and projects. It also allows for more study abroad opportunities, as well as internship opportunites, since they can be completed one month at a time.

Learn from professionals

start your career

Our Business Department faculty are experienced and active in their fields - including accounting, LEAN management, statistics, law, and more. They draw on this experience in each course to help students achieve their own career goals, including helping students launch their own businesses.

TM Practice Helps
