Careers

 

A Rich Array of Resources for FEMBA Students
The Paul Merage School of Business offers six Centers of Excellence that provide numerous opportunities for you to collaborate, work, and learn from business leaders and entrepreneurs.

The Don Beall Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship fosters a connection among researchers, visionaries, business leaders, and venture capitalists. You can become involved in one of the many exciting programs offered through the Center, and enhance your own entrepreneurial tendencies. Programs offered include a business plan competition, a venture capital investment competition, an entrepreneurial skills workshop series, a breakfast speaker series, and one-on-one consulting.

The Center for Global Leadership enables you to enhance your business and leadership skills. Through a variety of programs, the Center allows you to develop personal and managerial skills, to work directly with an executive mentor, and to learn valuable lessons in leadership and ethics. One of the most notable programs offered by the Center is the Distinguished Speaker Series, which brings prominent C-level speakers to campus. Recent speakers have included the president of the Disneyland Resort and the CEOs of Mattel, Allergan, Ingram Micro, and Volvo Cars of North America.

The Center for Real Estate serves as a forum to discuss and solve current and future real estate industry issues. It is the only one of its kind in southern California that is fully incorporated within the business school. Programs offered through the Center include a breakfast speaker series and an annual lifetime achievement award. Courses are offered through the business school in real estate finance, capital markets, and development. Additional courses are offered through affiliated faculty members in areas such as urban planning, environment, legal issues, and public policy.

The Center for Investment and Wealth Management embraces the complexities of creation, management, and intergenerational transfer of wealth. We draw on expertise from business leaders and university scholars as we mentor, teach, and advise students in the community. The Center provides the impetus for discussion and study of critical industry issues. You can also specialize your MBA through our elective course offerings in Financial Planning, Investments, and Wealth Management.

The Center for Health Care Management and Policy communicates important health care issues from financial, marketing, organizational, technological, legal, and economic perspectives. If your career has a health care focus, you will benefit from our lengthy record of innovation and discovery in the health care industry. Programs offered through the Center include an annual Health Care Forecast Conference and a health care industry speaker series.

The Center for Digital Transformation (formerly CRITO) brings together scholars from a variety of disciplines to study social and managerial issues related to technology. Researchers are currently studying how web services impact business, how companies can embrace technology, and how IT transforms the way we live, work, and play. The Center is supported by such organizations as IBM, Microsoft, Conexant, Canon, Intel, and the Department of Defense.  

Outside of the Centers of Excellence, the MBA Career Center is a valuable resource for FEMBA students, as well as corporate recruiters. The Career Center supports your career development and job search with resources, training and guidance. They can help you develop a long-term career plan and build career management skills.

  Academic Approach  
The Merage MBA core curriculum focuses on four key drivers of business growth that distinguish our graduates from other MBAs:  strategic innovation, information technology, analytic decision making and collaborative execution. Each of these themes is integrated into the core to help you build a solid foundation on which to effectively compete in today's global economy.

Another hallmark of the FEMBA program is teamwork. Students attend all of the core classes and the three off-site residentials with the students in their individual cohort. This model provides students with a collaborative and intense teamwork-driven environment.
