MBA Program Philosophy

The purpose of the IU MBA Program at IUPUC is to create a graduate business learning experience in which students integrate management knowledge and skills in ways that lead to effective decision-making, complex problem-solving, and leadership within a global and ethical context.

To accomplish this, graduate business faculty and staff rely heavily on these three activities:

  1. Designing and delivering a curriculum that integrates graduate-level content and skills into learning experiences that more closely resemble how real business is practiced by the general manager.
  2. Creating operational processes and policies that are student-centered.
  3. Actively engaging business and community leaders.
