Business Administration
BADM 539 – Special Topics Electives are designed to (1) help students enhance functional business skills by providing an in depth study of a selected topic from a business core area and (2) expose students to a variety of environments in which business decision making skills are applied, such as international or not-for profit organizations and/or specific industries, such as health care or service industries. The topics of specific BADM 539 courses offered each quarter are determined by a combination of student and faculty interest and availability.
BADM 585 – Strategy, Competitiveness and Economic Development The MOC course is based on materials developed by the Institute for Strategy and Competitiveness at Harvard Business School. The MOC course explores the determinants of competitiveness and successful economic development viewed from a bottom-up, microeconomic perspective. While sound macroeconomic policies, stable legal and political institutions and improving social conditions create the potential for competitiveness, wealth is actually created at the microeconomic level. The sophistication and productivity of firms, the vitality of clusters, and the quality of the business environment in which competition takes place, are the ultimate determinants of a nation’s or region’s productivity.

Urban & Regional Planning
PLAN 598 – The Global City Advanced seminar topics offered quarterly.
