Rockhurst University Revises MBA Program for Personal, Career GrowthApril 1, 2011

The Helzberg School of Management at Rockhurst University has restructured its master of business administration program to give students a more intensive focus on personal growth. Changes include the addition of a mentorship program, executive coaching and flexible start times.

The Helzberg MBA will still include standard foundational courses in disciplines such as finance, economics and marketing. What sets the new curriculum apart is an integrated approach that includes tools to improve self awareness and leadership capacity, personalized career coaching, pairing with a mentor in the business community and a host of educational and social events with Rockhurst MBA alumni and other corporate leaders.

Graduates complete the program with an electronic portfolio that demonstrates their development in a variety of areas.

In addition, the new program allows students greater flexibility by offering five points throughout the year to begin the program.

“Our holistic approach to MBA education ensures that graduates leave with the competence and conscience to be strong leaders throughout their careers,” said James Daley, Ph.D., dean of the Helzberg School. “And because our program is grounded in the Jesuit educational tradition, it is strengthened by the components of reflection on what has been learned and the desire to make the world a better place.”

The Helzberg School of Management is the only private institution in Kansas City to have earned accreditation by AACSB International — The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
