The University of Rhode Island has redesigned its one-year MBA program to include a focus on innovation and a more interdisciplinary approach.
"The redesigned program focuses on how to manage, design and implement strategic innovation," according to a press release. More fundamentally, the new curriculum isn't based on specific functional topics (like finance or accounting,) but rather focuses on business practices in a more holistic sense (courses include "Objectives and Metrics," and Business Improvement and Sustainability.")
New program will now be offered in downtown Providence (rather than in Kingston.)
