To enhance the necessary skills and knowledge needed in order to gain a competitive advantage in the changing business world.

Y.S.U is a AACSB (International accredited school) This achievement is very important because not every university can say that have it. This achievement recognizes that a school must satisfy a range of rigorous quality standards.
Y.S.U has small classrooms which is an advantage. The student would experience an one-on-one feeling in the classroom. Most MBA students are focused on school and what is in the future for them. With the environment with bigger classrooms, the students tends to be forgotten and that can take away the chance for the student to comprehend material and gain knowledge about specific subject matter.
