CREATE Path to the MBA

Get the details about theĀ  CREATE and STEM Path to the MBA programs in the video above.

Launched in Fall 2016, the CREATE Path to the MBA offers high-achieving undergraduate students majoring in traditionally creative disciplines the opportunity to complete coursework to earn an MBA from the Manderson Graduate School of Business in only one calendar year beyond the completion of an undergraduate degree.

The program is centered around innovative solutions to real-world problems and runs parallel to its sister program, the STEM Path to the MBA. Using nontraditional classroom methods and experiential learning opportunities, students on the CREATE Path to the MBA have the opportunity to grow both academically deep into their chosen major and functionally broad across different areas like communication, leadership, and professionalism. An added benefit from running parallel to the STEM Path to the MBA is that CREATE-MBA students will gain exposure to the technical backgrounds of their peers, further diversifying their frame of reference for problem-solving.
