Program now offered in downtown Providence

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.)

For more information, please see the press release announcing the redesign of the University of Rhode Island's one-year MBA program.
