The Stuart MBA prepares engineering, scientific and technology professionals for entrepreneurial and management careers in industries where technology plays a key role.
Being a part of the Illinois Institute of Technology, the Stuart MBA is particularly attuned to the needs and aspirations of engineering, scientific and technology professionals. In the globally competitive marketplace of the 21st century, which we call the Next Economy, successful executives need incisive decision-making skills, leadership skills to manage multicultural teams, an entrepreneurial mindset to identify rapidly-emerging opportunities, creativity in developing solutions to exploit these opportunities, innovative thinking to develop new products and services as part of these solutions and strong appreciation for sustainability to ensure that such solutions do not come at the expense of the environment or the planet. Our MBA program is designed around a cutting-edge framework called Strategic Competitiveness that integrates leadership, incisiveness, entrepreneurship, creativity, innovation and sustainability – ideas that are particularly relevant for the engineering, scientific and technology professionals.
