The Mount St. Mary’s MBA program places a strong emphasis on career coaching. Students not only receive individualized career coaching from experienced business professionals but also learn the skills of being a career coach to others.
During the first semester each student will go through an assessment process to identify interests, areas of strength and areas needing improvement. In the second semester participants will start working directly with a coach to improve their professional skills and learn the techniques and art of coaching others. In the third semester you will be a coach-in-training. In the last semester you will be receiving coaching directly in conjunction with your final project in a work environment so that upon graduation you will be prepared to attain greater professional advancement by bringing your own coaching skills to the workplace.
The unique feature of the Mount St. Mary’s MBA is that every MBA graduate will have the professional training and ability to coach others. This coaching skill and its application in the work environment can be used at any career level and is transferable to any professional setting.
