The program, now known as the Greehey M.B.A., it is an 18-month, cohort-based program that incorporates advanced graduate-level academic preparation with a special emphasis on ethical leadership, corporate social responsibility, sustainability and social entrepreneurship topics that have become hallmarks of St. Mary’s University and the Bill Greehey School of Business.
“I want our students to look back on their M.B.A. as an experience that separates the life they lived before entering our program from the ever-expanding circle of self-understanding, purpose and opportunity that comes after they graduate,” said Earnie Broughton, Executive-in-Residence and Director of the M.B.A. and Executive Education Programs. Broughton comes to St. Mary’s after more than 30 years of management and executive experience, including 11 years in organizational ethics for USAA.
Features of the Greehey M.B.A. program include:
- Small class sizes that allow personalized attention, one-on-one faculty interaction and the opportunity for peer-to-peer mentoring
- Evening classes with a Values-driven Leadership Lab held on selected Saturdays
- Focus on developing advanced behavioral skills, such as conflict resolution, teamwork, personal branding, and innovation and creativity – skills that distinguish top performers in business
- Modular overviews of essential business operational topics such as employee engagement, enterprise risk management and internal audit
- A built-in, concentrated international field study experience that prepares students to engage in business with diverse cultures
- A curriculum based on practical and applied experiential learning
- A required internship or consultative practicum to provide real-world experience with for-profit, not-for-profit and nongovernmental organizations on-site, virtually, or both.
St. Mary’s Greehey School of Business is one of only six percent of business schools worldwide accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).
