The Curriculum

The UoPeople MBA is entirely online and is structured around three curricular components:  Core Courses, Electives, and the Capstone Project. The three components are described below.

Core Courses

The Core consists of eight courses covering the theory, principles, concepts, and tools of the academic disciplines that undergird the field of management. Taught from a global perspective, they build the competencies that students need whether they are involved in the private, public or nonprofit sector.

Students choose electives to reflect individual interests.  Choices can be made to gain breadth in general management competencies or to develop depth in some particular area.  Students complete at least three elective courses chosen from the following:
