Intensive 3-week Management Programs

Mount Saint Mary College is excited to be offering a short term January and July interim  training program for high-level managerial students in emerging countries. With tracks in health care management, marketing,financial and project management, and strategic thinking  the goal is to empower participants with current management tools and provide international experience.

Geared to undergraduate students and recent graduates, this intensive program lasts three weeks, with classes and activities full time. This program will run for the first time in January and July 2014.

To facilitate access for students from emerging countries to these courses, students are supported by an extensive and successful program of scholarships, covering 70% of their expenditure on the course chosen. 

We invite everyone to know of and participate in these programs.

General Description of Program

The courses are aimed at undergraduates and recent graduates with an interest in pursuing studies in specific areas of management (see course listings below) while also developing their level of English language proficiency. The goal is to create a foundation in business studies, providing the student with an advanced vision of contemporary topics on the chosen theme and a vital international experience. Classes are taught entirely in English, with lessons and activities full time.

The courses are three weeks in length. To ensure close contact between teacher and students, classes are composed of groups with between 15 and 30 participants. In January, classes will be taught at Mount Saint Mary College, except of course for Health Care Management that happens both in January and in July at MSMC.

Program Highlights include:

Intensive Courses in Business and Health Administration in the United States.

Visits to companies

A program tailored to your needs

The courses allow students to leverage their expertise in an international program without having to disconnect themselves from their home university or internship in their country of origin. The programs, equivalent to a postgraduate extension, were structured to be routed in January, leaving free three weekends in one of the most sought after tourist regions of the world.

Certificates (see below details on the certification issued to participants) are conferred based on classroom participation and experential learning. Students have weekly assignments and seminars and the goal is to structure a program which is both participatory and concrete, in which students actively engage in the development of practical activities.
