The NLU MBA Program prepares and enhances the students’ skills for the practice of management, emphasizing the development of authentic leadership competencies. The aim is to produce general management practitioners rather than specialists in particular functional areas.
The material used during the classes is mostly based on authentic situations (case study) which may occur in professional companies; prepared projects can be successfully used in real business situations.
The students of full-time, second degree management courses, have opportunity to participate in the Global Business Management and MBA Program simultaneously.

The NLU MBA program concentrates on leadership — integrating content knowledge and career development to help students sharpen their skills and increase their employability. Accredited by the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE), the program provides students with key business skills in areas such as organizational behavior, ethics, accounting, finance, economics, project management, marketing, international management, technology, and business strategy.
As Dr. Catherine Honig, Associate Professor of Management at NLU, explains:
Focusing on leadership in an MBA program addresses multiple goals. Practitioners and academics alike have called for an increased emphasis in this area in MBA programs, largely because even a cursory review of organizational successes (and failures) points directly to the impact of leadership. It’s a powerful common denominator across industries, organizations and sectors, and it raises important questions about how to strategically drive change, influence decisions, and inspire others to new levels of innovation.
Earning an MBA also is about career advancement, so it is important to think in those terms when defining an MBA curriculum. Adding a leadership theme provides enhanced career opportunity and career flexibility for students by building into the program knowledge and skills that are relevant across organizational environments and also across the trajectory of a career. Whether someone is leading a team, managing a project, or starting a new business, the ability to accomplish goals through others is equally valuable and significant.
