MBA Cohort for High-Potentials and ExecutivesMaster of Business Administration

Leadership is earned, not given. With an MBA from the University of New Haven, you won’t have to tell people you’re ready for the next step in your professional life. They’ll know it.

Think Differently. Lead Differently.

We were the first MBA Cohort program for High Potentials and Executives in Connecticut. We are still the most unique.

What makes us so?

We're Transformational, Not Transactional.

Students enter our program as subject experts in their specific disciplines — healthcare or engineering, for example — but they graduate with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to make the leap to leadership roles. With an MBA degree from the University of New Haven, you won’t have to tell people you’re ready for the next step in your professional life. They’ll know it.

We're About Relationship Learning, Not Just Showing Up.

When you join our MBA Cohort program, you immediately become part of a close-knit, energizing, and supportive family. In each class, you’ll find a strong blend of student perspectives, backgrounds, and expertise. Our small class sizes enable you to develop lifelong relationships as you learn from your professors, alumni and classmates.

We're About Skill-Building, Not Task-Doing

In a dynamic business environment, skills can increase and decrease in value as fast as you learn them. Our program helps you to develop and manage your skills and experience portfolio to stay relevant and valuable at all times, regardless of the current business climate.

We're About Integration, Not Silos.

Successful organizations rely on teamwork and collaboration. We use a theme-based curriculum to thoroughly equip you as a leader to integrate your work, goals, and communication strategies across different disciplines and groups.

We're About Theory – Backed Up With Practice.

Our professors bring years of real-world experience and leadership to the classroom. You will learn to be a leader from leaders. And because our program requires you to put what you learn to work — every week — you won’t have to wait until graduation to reap the benefits of being part of such an innovative program.

We're Invested in Your Success – Today and Tomorrow

Your fellow classmates, your professors, and the largest MBA Cohort alumni network in the state are intensely interested in your success. We also provide you with a personal executive coach with whom you can bounce off ideas, consider new opportunities, or determine how best to navigate whatever may be blocking your career enrichment.

"Our MBA Cohort program is designed to educate managers to think cross-functionally while keeping a keen eye out for organizational change and improvement opportunities. Enabling our students to lead positive organizational change is an important focus of our program." Robert Albright Ph.D.

The MBA Cohort program changed the way I see, hear, and act on a daily basis—and proved to me how true is the ancient saying ‘The only thing that is constant is change.’
