Through our programs, students acquire the exceptional ability to grow their organizations through strategic innovation, analytical decision-making, digital information technology and collaborative execution.

Leading in a digitally driven world takes agility and savvy. The UCI Paul Merage School of Business' approach prepares students to adapt to the ever-changing business environment and face head-on the challenges brought on by disruption. To lead in the disruption of today and tomorrow, we need to understand these technologies and master their strategic implications. One way we are accomplishing this is by using cutting-edge instructional approaches and technologies through digital course and program delivery. Our digital learning department spends dedicated one-on-one time with faculty to develop digital courses that focus on optimizing student learning. With our hybrid Fully Employed MBA classes and the expansion of our BA undergraduate online offerings, we are changing the way our students take digital courses. Our digital learning team focuses on three overarching course design goals, which are to create synergies for minimizing transactional distance, incorporating diverse opportunities for learning connections and designing active digital learning experiences. Digital learning at the Merage School is more than a convenience; it's an experience. Just as the production of goods and services is changing in business, so are we capitalizing on new technologies to build community, provide access and create world class learning experiences. By reconceptualizing the path by which students learn, we are doing our part to build flexibility and access in education, bolstering the American Dream.
