Message from the Director
The Tabor School of Business MBA was conceived and designed to help boost professional skills and accelerate your career. Our focus is not on making you a technician of business facts, but on creating an executive perspective of management decisions and decision making. Whether you are already a business professional or are coming from paths such as engineering, medicine, or public service, you will come to see business in new and comprehensive ways, which will raise your business acumen and open opportunities for professional success.
You will work beside other dedicated professionals and with academically and professionally qualified men and women in a give-and-take atmosphere that deepens your understanding of business. The C-suite experiences of many of our faculty in running and building businesses drives reality to the classroom and helps you see and think from an executive perspective.
It is our mission to help you gain an edge for professional success.
