Your electives enable you to tailor your program to suit you.

Fall

Immersion

Immersion is a combination of learning academic fundamentals, leadership development, building new relationships, and forging a sense of community, all while orienting yourself with the city and campus.

Financial Accounting

Learn about the concepts and practices of financial and managerial accounting. You will deal with the recognition, measurement, and reporting of a firm’s economic transactions, and be exposed to the framework of generally accepted accounting principles, both U.S. and international. Focus on the use of accounting information to measure, analyze, and report economic events for internal decision-making purposes. You will also learn about cost behavior, reporting, budgeting, and activity-based costing.

Global Strategy

Executives face constant change in global industry as well as in their own backyard. The solutions they must define strike a delicate balance between adapting strategic thinking to business realities and implementing attitudes that are essential to motivating their teams. Develop a deep understanding of the challenges top management in today’s corporations face when implementing corporate and global strategy. You will focus on the craft, the opportunities, and the challenges of developing strategies. Among the analytical skills are methodologies and frameworks for product, firm, industry, and market analysis.

Project Management

In today’s business world, project management skills are applicable in most business roles. Big data research that Hult has conducted shows that project management skills are the most in-demand skills in today’s employment market. You will focus on how to balance the demands of time, quality, scope, and cost inherent in any project while considering the interests of all stakeholders affected. Explore the principles, methodology, and practical information through a combination of lectures, assignments, group collaboration, and hands-on exercises.

Global Economics

Explore, discuss, and critique key concepts, frameworks, and cycles in the global economy. Study important principles and theories of microeconomics and macro-economics, and develop a deeper understanding of the business cycles, booms, busts, recessions, depressions, and volatilities in the global economy.

Leadership Development

Build on the skills and models introduced during immersion and specifically focus on growth mindset, interpersonal influence, and team collaboration. Through interactive and collaborative learning, you’ll build skills in communication, relationship building, persuasion, negotiation, and conflict resolution. The workshops are a companion to Hult’s peer feedback process and can provide input on your development priorities.

Future Mindset

In the next ten years the rise of emerging technologies will change economics and daily life around the world. Making sense of the possibilities and experiences that a new world of mobility, big data, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence will bring requires a future mindset that can act in rapidly shifting digital contexts and technologies. You will build competencies in the mindsets and approaches of the new digital economy, exploring the contexts in which digitally forward organizations define new opportunities— and how they turn these opportunities into learning and growth.

Financial Management

Develop the financial and logical skills to understand and discuss financial policy in a global economy. Objectives include developing an understanding of the time value of money, using financial statements in decision-making, and understanding the nature of financial markets, the cost of capital, and the valuation on stocks and bonds. Through case discussions and the supplementary readings, you will develop the knowledge, skills, critical-thinking ability, and behaviors required of any manager, not only those specializing in finance.

International Marketing

Marketing is the interface between the company and the marketplace. Managers in all functional areas of business need an understanding of marketing fundamentals. While marketing managers create and implement marketing strategies, managers in other disciplines such as accounting, finance, and operations also need to understand marketing plans that require their cooperation or approval. Understand the processes involved in the creation, communication, pricing, and distribution and development of products. Gain an overview of what marketing is, what marketers do, and the concepts and tools they rely on to achieve their objectives.

Analytics in Business Decisions

In this new world of information overload, employers actively seek candidates who have the ability to translate data into actionable solutions. Place yourself at the intersection of statistical analysis and business knowledge so that you can make meaningful, impactful contributions to any business.

JAN - MAR

Spring

Future Challenge

Your core challenge in the spring is the capstone to your core courses and demands the utmost creativity. Building upon themes established throughout the program, the Future Challenge calls upon students to harness disruptive technology to create a compelling new business opportunity, either for your own startup or for an existing company. You’ll prepare for the Future Challenge by learning about the disruptive technologies themselves (e.g. blockchain, gene editing, artificial intelligence). You and your team are then given three weeks to develop innovative business ideas utilizing a disruptive technology. Winning teams will present their ideas to external judges who include senior executives, entrepreneurs, and venture capitalists.
