Business Innovation for the Next Economy
It’s the end of business as usual. Managers and entrepreneurs hoping to succeed in the emerging global business environment – the “Next Economy” – will have to tackle complex issues such as hyper-competition, globalization, environmental degradation, social problems, political volatility and economic turbulence. The key to success is Business Innovation – the ability to think creatively and develop radically new business models to solve complex human problems. The IIT Stuart School of Business has designed a highly innovative and cutting-edge curriculum that will prepare you to succeed in the Next Economy.
A One-of-a-Kind Educational Experience
IIT Stuart’s Master of Business Administration is the only such program in Chicago offered within a technology-focused university. IIT Stuart is uniquely positioned to train you to excel in organizations where technology is a key source of competitiveness. Throughout your IIT Stuart education, the latest industry-relevant ideas and technologies will be within your reach.
How to Know, Be, and Do—the IIT Stuart Difference
The emerging, post-crisis, global business environment which we call the Next Economy will demand a new set of skills and competencies. At IIT Stuart, we are at the forefront of creating a transformative educational experience that will prepare you to succeed in the complex and uncertain market place that is unfolding in front of our eyes. Our programs have all been thoroughly revamped recently to ensure their relevancy and deliver the following cutting-edge skills:
• Knowing Skills: The integrated, multidisciplinary knowledge that you need to master the complex dynamics of the Next Economy and become an effective decision maker (e.g., cutting-edge theories, global business management and business model innovation).
• Doing Skills: The skills you need to manage change, mobilize resources and steer your organization to success in the ever-changing world of the Next Economy (e.g., implementation skills, change management).
• Being Skills: The intangible values and mindset you need to solve problems, lead people, and communicate across cultures in the Next Economy (e.g., social responsibility, ethics, cultural intelligence).
Dual Degree Options
Highly motivated MBA students may want to consider our variety of dual-degree programs. If admitted, you can pursue the two degrees in parallel and achieve significant savings in both time and credit hours. For example, if you pursued the MBA and a Master of Science degree separately, you would need to complete a total of 27 courses to obtain the two degrees. By doing them simultaneously, you would have to complete only 21 courses – thus saving six courses. The exact courses you take would be identified by your academic advisor upon enrollment.
