The MBA--Tribal Management Program.
Bread, Donald J.
The only graduate program in the United States devoted entirely to tribal management is designed to educate and prepare students for employment with Indian tribes and organizations and with federal and state agencies. The highly academically structured 34-hour program addresses concerns often ignored in corporate management and public administration programs. Those concerns include: communication systems; Indian personnel management systems; accounting systems; academic resources; the sociological impact of the bureaucracy; the relationship between tribal government and tribal management; program management; limited tribal staff; and Indian law. The MBA program, which takes advantage of research activity common to graduate study and includes externships with tribal governments, will require the long range continuation of tribal management as an academic discipline, professional and staff development and recruitment, validation, a strong publicity effort aimed at Indian students, and serious preparation of Indian students for graduate school. Admission requirements include a strong academic background in business. Course descriptions are included. (SB)
