First-year Courses

The program kicks off with the Go! Week residency.

First-year courses cover the functional disciplines: finance, accounting, marketing, microeconomics and macroeconomics, data analysis, operations, corporate strategy, organizational behavior, and risk management. Classes are paired to illustrate how the disciplines interact. Understanding these interrelationships is essential for enterprise-wide management.

Core courses also are designed to sharpen your ability to solve complex problems, make decisions quickly and wisely – even with incomplete information, and negotiate more strategically.

At the conclusion of year one, you participate in a weeklong leadership residency.
