Fairfield Dolan MBA Offers New Curricular Customization, Expands Reach in Shanghai

Shanghai MBA students

Students now have the flexibility to design their own MBA program at the Charles F. Dolan School of Business. The same leading business education is now available to professionals in Shanghai.

It is an exciting time at Fairfield Dolan. Last semester, the business school enrolled 128 new graduate students, representing an 83 percent growth. This tremendous increase reflects the appeal of Dolan’s nationally ranked, top graduate business degree programs. Fairfield Dolan continues to launch new programs and enhance curricular offerings of existing ones. These advances have been made in alignment with the school’s mission to develop innovative, principled, and globally minded business leaders for a better world.

The Fairfield Dolan MBA in particular has transformed to meet students where they are, and now offers a high degree of customization. Students can elect a hybrid format and build the curriculum they want from a selection of courses that meet their interests and needs. With the revised MBA, there are now fewer required courses, plus the option to pursue more than one concentration. Because "one size does not fit all," Dolan MBA students are given tremendous flexibility to design their own plans of study to suit their needs.

“The change from an on-campus format to a hybrid modality, prior to the pandemic, has really enhanced the appeal of our MBA program,” said Program Director Mousumi Bose Godbole. “We are very excited about the highly customizable MBA curriculum launching this semester.”

News around the Fairfield Dolan MBA does not stop there. Fairfield University has partnered with Golden Education, one of the largest management training companies in China, to offer the Dolan MBA to professionals in Shanghai.

“A degree from a U.S. institution is highly regarded in China, but not all students have the time or money to go abroad,” explained Dean Li. The Fairfield Dolan MBA program in Shanghai, taught by Fairfield professors, allows students to continue in their professional careers while pursuing the degree in the evenings and weekends. While the program has a focus on finance, students also take the same marketing, management, and leadership courses that Fairfield MBA students take. Shanghai students are scheduled to take their final class in the program — the "Wall Street Immersion" course — on campus in fall 2021.
