The Master of Business degree program offered at the Wentworth Institute is focused on producing quality graduates with industry and job relevant knowledge and skills who are capable of assuming leadership and management roles. The Master of Business degree is of four semester’s duration full-time and includes nested programs at Graduate Certificate (one semester full time) and Graduate Diploma (two semesters full time) levels.
A feature of these programs is the inclusion of a core Business Communication subject. This subject will not only help to ensure students’ success throughout the course by developing needed written and oral communication skills but will also enhance graduates’ employability.
The inclusion of a core Business Ethics subject will not only ensure students’ appreciation of the importance of ethical decision-making in business but will also establish a guiding principal to be reinforced and applied in both subsequent studies as well as professional activities.
Another important feature of the Master of Business Degree program is the requirement to undertake a Business Project subject focused on developing students’ needed research skills which will be demonstrated by the execution of a substantial piece of research in the form of a project.
