Galen University’s MASTER OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION (MBA) is breaking new barriers for the delivery of graduate education in Belize. This program offers students the distinctive opportunity to complete a graduate degree in sixteen months. The MBA program is specifically designed for professionals with a minimum of two years working experience, who have completed studies in Business Administration or related fields at the undergraduate level with a minimum GPA of 3.0 (B Average). The program brings together working professionals from across Belize and the region, which together with our experienced faculty, create an exciting and challenging classroom environment with real applications to the business world and with relevance to the realities in Belize. The MBA program is an opportunity for business professionals to advance their careers in a forum that is both convenient and customized. Galen’s MBA program emphasizes applied learning and utilizes the Harvard Business School case study method in most of the courses. The cases:
• portray real events
• immerse students in the challenges they are expected to face
• require thoughtful analyses with limited or even insufficient information
• require effective responses within ambiguous circumstances or complex economic and political contexts
• demand decisive action that must be articulated among other talented, ambitious individuals
The MBA offers a high quality curriculum on a Wednesday night and an all-day Saturday format. This delivery method requires students to commit to intensive coursework with time off for holidays. This innovative program consists of thirteen courses delivered in a sequence (cohort), with each course lasting five weeks. All students are required to move directly from one course to another.
A GPA of 3.0 must be maintained throughout the program and a minimum grade of B- attained in each course.
