Orientation week is the start of your MBA program at Baylor University. It includes the administrative items needed to begin the MBA program, as well as academic workshops, skill-building activities, and team challenges - all designed to help you navigate important resources that you need to be successful at Baylor and beyond. Orientation is a very busy but rewarding week.
At orientation you will meet fellow classmates, faculty and staff, and local business leaders. Student leaders start to emerge as you work through the various activities. This experience will help you develop a strong personal brand that you will use to reach your personal career goals.
Students participate in a one-day Case Competition, opening the door immediately to the experiential learning process in the MBA program. Students work in teams to develop a recommendation to a problem identified by a company from the Central Texas area. Companies that partnered with Baylor in fall 2014 include:
- Baylor Scott&White Hillcrest Medical Center
- Extraco Banks
- Dwyer Group
- Providence Healthcare Network
- Technology Overview
- Introduction to Case Analysis
- Focus on Ethics
- Review of articles in Wall Street Journal
Team Building Activities
Students get to know their classmates throughout the week, with a final team building initiative held at Baylor's outdoor challenge course.
