23918341_BG1.jpgIf you read my last blog post, you would probably know what you can get out of your MBA at University of Nevada, Reno (UNR). But there are still some people (like almost all of my engineering colleagues) who want to know what they achieve from MBA classes. Here in this post and couple of next ones, I explain more about the core courses of MBA program at UNR. The total of 51 credits (17 three credits class) is required to graduate from UNR MBA program including: (UNR MBA Curriculum)

  • 7 core classes with the total of 21 credits
  • 6 breath classes with the total of 18 credits
  • 3 elective classes with the total of 9 credits.

Core classes are mandatory courses and include Marketing, Statistics, Organization Behavior, Finance, and economy courses. Here is a short summary for each of these classes.

Statistic gives you the basic tool to understand and implement the math part of all other MBA courses. If you got your bachelor in engineering or any relevant majors, this course would be waived for you with graduate director’s permission.

Marketing is about the understanding of Marketing 4 Ps and investing optimally in each of these Ps to boost your business. For this class you are required to analyses and present two marketing approaches of two published companies.  You will also learn about Mark-ups and lots of other good things in this class.

Organization Behavior can be summarized in one equation; People’s behavior is the function of their personality and environment. In this course, you will be trained to understand how you can change people’s behavior with changing their environment. Culture and leadership are the two most important concepts in this lesson. If you want to know more, you should visit Dr. Bret Simmons website.

In my next post, I will explain more about Finance and economy courses. Meanwhile, message me on LinkedIn if you have any questions.
