The Program consists of 3 Phases. Phase 1 will provide students with essential training in international business, 'the philosophical foundations of management thought,' research methodology, and statistics. Phase 2 will enable students to major in an area of specialization chosen among Finance, General Management, Information Systems, Management Science, Managerial Accounting, Marketing, Operations Management, and Organizational Behaviour. The final Phase will require students to research, write, and defend a dissertation/thesis.
