Second-Year Curriculum

In the second year of the MBA program, you will continue to broaden your experience and perspective, deepen your knowledge in a specific discipline, or simply pursue areas of interest.

Customize your MBA experience by choosing from a broad range of electives to strengthen leadership areas, ensure a solid general management foundation, and explore new subjects.

Each year we offer at least 100 courses that change year to year. As an example, here are the electives that were offered in 2019–20.

“Interpersonal Dynamics taught me to listen. I know it may sound simple, but it wasn’t for me. I realized that what I had always thought was listening was capturing only part of the story. True listening — being able to discern both the message and emotions underlying someone’s words — strikes me as a superpower. This course helped me cultivate that superpower.”
