Why a global M.B.A. in CIM?
Middle Tennessee State University now offers a unique M.B.A. degree for the concrete industry. This program is the result of many years of close collaboration between the University and the construction industry, leaders of which had expressed the need to further enhance the quality of their management staff by providing them with a highly focused and selective M.B.A. degree that addressed current and future needs. The Concrete Industry Management Department responded by creating a partnership with the MTSU Jennings A. Jones College of Business to establish a global M.B.A. specializing in the concrete industry. The Jennings A. Jones College of Business, with one of the largest faculty in the United States, is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) and the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International.
This global M.B.A. is a rigorous, highly interactive degree program that thrives on diversity of cultures with mutual benefit to participants and sponsoring companies. Its major themes are globalization, leadership, strategy, and execution. The program will take participants beyond basics to a true understanding of forces that will shape the concrete and construction industry. Successful graduates should be able to immediately impact their businesses with a unique global, strategic, and operational perspective and be ideally equipped to tackle the most pressing industry issues and help chart a future course of action. Participants will be shown skills needed for leadership and team building and motivational skills to create synergy and energize their teams with the aim of achieving excellence throughout the organization.
The program will be a unique learning opportunity with direct interaction from participants’ organizations to be certain that individual and corporate needs are being met. Each participant will be surveyed about educational needs and periodic reviews will be conducted to ensure that all program and individual needs are being satisfied.
The program is designed for industry professionals with business, liberal arts, or technical degrees who will ideally possess a minimum of three years of experience in the industry.
