You'll Develop Confidence in Your Business Abilities
Strategic planning, leadership, use of technology and other competencies are part of the designed outcomes of this online MBA program.
VUCA and the MBA
The acronym, "VUCA" (short for volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity) became popular after the 9/11 terrorist attacks and was adopted by strategic business leaders to describe the frenzied, unsettled tone and pace of business today. Some call this "the new normal."
In response, Nick Petrie of the Center for Strategic Leadership, wrote, "Leadership development should be focused on learning agility, self-awareness, comfort with ambiguity, and strategic thinking."
The MBA program at New England College of Business encourages students to think strategically and solve the unstructured business problems that VUCA evokes. Through close engagement with their professors—and with each other in small working groups which are a hallmark of every MBA class—students dissect and solve business challenges that are current and relevant to today's business environment, not those those nestled in the worn textbooks of yesterday.
