The School of Management (SOM) has teamed up with the Smithsonian Institution to offer a mini-M.B.A. as part of the Campus on the Mall program. Campus on the Mall allows nonspecialists a chance to study the most recent research in fields ranging from art and business to science and technology.
The mini-M.B.A. program taught by George Mason SOM faculty members offers students an opportunity to learn more about modern business management. The series was designed to capture the breadth of the M.B.A. curriculum in the shortest time possible, and to introduce the most important current issues in the field. At the end of the eight weeks, participants receive a mini-M.B.A. certificate.
Tonight, almost 300 students will attend the first session, Marketing Management, taught by SOM dean Teresa Domzal. Other courses taught during the eight-week program include Managerial Economics Decision Making, taught by Karen Hallows; Managing Cost and Evaluation Performance, taught by Vernon Hsu; Managerial Finance, taught by Sharon Brown-Hruska; Organizational Behavior, taught by John Schmidt; Information Technology and Management, taught by Andres Fortino; and Strategy and Policy, taught by Michael Wasserman.
