Intersecting Minds: Education, Business and Technology at the North Carolina State Jenkins Graduate School of Management

My Class Schedule | September 22, 2008

I’m about to enter some hectic days, but I thought it would be a good idea to rip off a quick post about my classes this semester for those who are curious about what an MBA schedule looks like:

MBA 500, Career and Managerial Effectiveness: A somewhat unique course to an MBA program that teaches us how to pursue the job of our dreams. Resumes, Cover Letters, Networking, Writing and Communication skills are all covered

MBA 503, Accounting for MBA’s: A basic introduction to Financial and Managerial Accounting practices

MBA 504, Statistics for MBA’s: Application-based class focused on probability and data leading up to single and multiple-variable regression analysis

MBA 505, Economics for MBA’s: Micro-heavy content with some macro themes included. One of the more interesting courses so far for the wide range of its material.

MBA 508, Global Strategy Simulation: A five-week crash-course where we manage a shoe company in a computer simulation and learn the importance of strategic management in guiding an organization.

MBA 530, Managing the High-Tech Workforce: Organizational Behavior and HR are the main topics here. This is an 8-week course and will be followed up by another Strategic Management of Technology course after the Fall break in early October.

Each of these courses are heavily integrated with the others, as mentioned in my earlier post. And all have a technology heavy focus.
