Program Curriculum

Faculty

Klotilda Habilaj

Part-time MBA 2017
Supply Chain Process Manager, BJ's Wholesale Club

I came to Assumption College ready to be a manager, and I am walking away ready to be a leader.

In the process of earning my MBA, I learned about my ability to drive a vision, understand when there are fundamental gaps in an organization, and develop unique and creative solutions to close those gaps. As a result, I have become a better and well-rounded Project Manager.
Ledia Dilo

Part-time MBA 2014
Head of Member Care Services and Voice of the Member, BJs Wholesale Club

Offered the best return on investment for my career.

This program really stood out for its superior quality at a reasonable cost. It perfectly fit my needs for a rich and flexible curriculum that allowed me to manage a demanding career with the responsibilities of being a mom of young children.
Patrick Mescall

Part-time MBA 2014
New Product Development Senior Sourcing Specialist, Tokyo Electron

I live and work 45 minutes away - it’s an MBA worth fighting evening traffic for.

There’s a real sense of community and collaboration. The classes are small and enthusiastic and the instructors are accessible and willing to help. It's also important that the curriculum and case studies are highly relevant to the real world of being a business manager.
Monique Tremblay

Part-time MBA 2014
Provider Relations and Communications Advisor, CVS Health

I’m making a far greater impact at work.

I feel more comfortable interacting with senior leadership. Whether it’s due to my higher confidence level or simply the fact that I now have an MBA, colleagues genuinely value my opinions and trust that I know what I’m talking about.
Matt Kelley

Part-time MBA 2009
Controller, Viewpoint Creative, Inc.

The Assumption MBA program boosted my expertise in many facets of strategic management.

It provided an outstanding opportunity for students to perfect their presentation skills on a variety of business topics and in a manner that instilled understanding and confidence. The development of these skills are essential for success in today’s business environment.
Leah DiPilato

Part-time MBA 2009
Senior Quality Assurance Associate, AbbVie

I’m thrilled to have earned my MBA degree at Assumption.

The program is exceptional for the intimate and dynamic atmosphere it provides for working professionals to build their management skills. As my career has progressed, the expertise I developed in the MBA program has been instrumental in my success.
Kathryn White

Part-time MBA 2010
Vice President, Risk Management, GFA Federal Credit Union

I was transformed into a stronger manager who emphasizes strategic goals and critical thinking.

The blended courses are a huge help for a busy professional. The curriculum was delivered half in the classroom and half online, without reducing the quality of the education. The interaction between professors and students was exceptional.
Greg Sclama

Part-time MBA 2010
Researcher, UNICEF

Students can tailor their degrees to their career passions.

I had an interest in learning about small business in developing economies as a means for poverty alleviation. Six months later, I was completing distance learning while working with a non-government organization that assists the rural poor in Rajasthan, India.

Admissions Requirements

Part-Time MBA Specific Requirements

TOEFL Scores: The minimum accepted score for TOEFL is 540 paper, 200 computer and 79-80 internet and for IELTS is 6.0.

GMAT Scores: The GMAT is not required.

Personal Statement

The Admissions Committee will consider the match between your professional interests and Assumption’s program offerings. We recommend that you give considerable thought to the content of your essay as it is an important part of the evaluation process. Success in the MBA program and in the field requires high levels of responsibility, integrity, and interpersonal skill, as well as mastery of theory and research methodology. We are seeking candidates who have thought deeply about their reasons to pursue an advanced degree in business. We encourage you to reflect this thought and to describe your preparation thoroughly in the essay you submit.  Your personal statement should answer each of the following questions:

  1. Describe the academic preparation and skills that you have that you believe qualify you for the rigorous training involved in our master's program in Business.
  2. Describe what you hope to accomplish academically during your graduate program and the career goals you have for yourself. Focusing on the actual job you would like to have five years after completing your graduate study will bring specificity to your essay.
  3. Describe your strengths and other qualities that you see as essential to be successful in business.

Recommendation Letters (3): Submit three recommendations from individuals in a position to assess your potential performance in an MBA program. At least one, and preferably more of these references, should be from former professors or other academics. Only letters that are academic or professional in nature will be considered. Recommendations may be submitted using the recommendation form.

References from friends, relatives, or peers/colleagues at work are generally not helpful to the Admissions Committee. Multiple references from the same employer are also discouraged.

If you are relying on work references because of the unavailability of academic references, anyone you ask to complete a reference should focus directly on your ability to meet the demands of a graduate program in business, and not merely report on your employment.
