Suffolk - Sawyer to Launch New MBA Program

School will integrate practical components—like a travel seminar—into the MBA curriculum

The Boston-based Suffolk University Sawyer Business School has announced that it will launch a new MBA program this fall. The new MBA will integrate practical components and will be tied to Boston's local industries.

The practical components in the new program will include a semester-long operations management class, in which students will visit a local hospital to look at how an operations chain works in the real world. Additionally, students will also take part in a domestic or global travel seminar, where they will study real business problems faced by businesses.

The new MBA will also be tied to some of Boston's industries, including biotech, finance, healthcare, and startups. The school notes that it has forged collaborative partnerships with some firms in these industries, and executives from some of these firms will visit MBA classes and discuss the business issues that their industries face.

The program can be completed on a full- or part-time basis. The MBA will run alongside the other MBA programs that Sawyer offers, including its specialized MBAs in Health and Nonprofit.

Suffolk - Sawyer is listed by FIND MBA as one of the 10 best business schools in the world for a career in nonprofit management.
