Earning a post graduate degree is an intensive educational experience. The primary goal of the Graduate Programmes at University of Garden City (UGC) is to prepare students to become socially responsible managers and leaders from an ethical, values-based perspective. Some of our Post Graduate courses are practice-based and we acknowledge the experience that each of our students brings to academic experience. Many, perhaps, most of our students are completing their qualifications part-time and we are mindful of the particular challenges associated with this type of studying and the need to provide for these through flexible delivery options, including online materials.
Though UGC is a relatively young institution, many of our faculty possesses a wealth of varied and long experience in academia. Our faculty as well as staff is committed to place students first. However, in the long run, our success will be measured by the achievements of our students, and the level of leadership they assume in their respective organizations and institutions and in the nation as a whole.
For the time being we have four approved programmes at the Masters level and only one of them, the MBA, is running. In the future we hope to have more programmes and up to the doctorate level.
With globalization and greater interlinking between countries, business as well as governments and nonprofit organizations are increasingly looking for leaders with a global perspective. To successfully manage and lead in an increasingly complex environment, many are finding that traditional “business education” in an MBA program is no longer enough.
To develop and enable the next generation of such business leaders, University of Garden City established MBA Program. Deciding to pursue a serious learning endeavor like an MBA is an important life choice. It is a very wise investment in yourself and probably the best thing you can do to create exciting new professional opportunities.
The payoff is not only professional, rather, many are surprised to discover, the return on investment is first and foremost personal. You will learn a lot about yourself along the way, see the business world and the world in a new way, face numerous challenges that will push you to go beyond what you thought you were capable of doing, and you will celebrate victories big and small (some of which only you will know about). As you will discover, the most challenging part is managing your “project” – doing the work, making the time, meeting the deadlines, staying positive, enjoying the process, and being both efficient and effective. And, like all investments, the more you put in, the more you will get in return.
We are proud to offer you forward-thinking content, delivered by internationally-renowned faculty, which addresses the current issues facing people, organizations and society today – and equips you with the right skill-set to adjust to the unprecedented challenges the future will present to all of us.
We look forward to sharing this journey of reflection, discovery and advancement with you!
