The MMH Program
is an AACSB-accredited
, specialized business degree offered on two campuses that covers an intensive three-semester curriculum in one year. This rigorous academic program is based on MMH degree requirements that cultivate strategic thought and quantitative skills, a combination essential in upper management positions. In addition to core requirements, students choose their own Concentration , a series of courses concentrating in their intended career path.
In addition to the academics, the MMH program integrates many professional development opportunities where students are able to meet and interact with industry executives. Exposure to industry executives offers the students the opportunity to establish professional relationships and build an individual network to rely on throughout their careers.
Once you have been admitted to the MMH program
, you will be registered for six online pre-courses available through the eCornell system.
Successful completion of these courses is required to begin the MMH program. The online pre-courses prepare students for the rigor of the required Semester 1a and 1b block courses.
The pre-course curriculum is as follows:

- HAME 508 MMH: Making Capital Investment Decisions

- Making Capital Investment Decisions
Using timelines and cash-flow calculations these two modules will teach you to project cash flow, calculate payments, establish the value of securities and investments, and determine when it is more cost-effective to lease or to buy. You will learn six capital-budgeting rules for making sound project-investment decisions, examine how these six rules differ from one another, and learn which rules are most appropriate when.

- Using Ratio Analysis to Evaluate Financial Performance
These two modules will teach you how to read and interpret income statements, cash-flow statements, and balance sheets and thus gain a solid foundation for more advanced analysis of a firm's financial performance.
