The program will be bookended with two “bridge” courses where students will be asked to apply their unique skills and the business concepts they learn to a series of case studies. “History majors are going to look at things differently than a science major or a humanities major,” says Brian Lohr, director of MBA and MSB admissions at Mendoza. “We don’t want to downplay their different backgrounds.
