Curriculum change is both difficult and necessary in Universities. The expanding role of information technologies and the increased challenges of decision making in business and society in general warrant greater coverage in Master of Business Administration (MBA) programs, but determining what to include, how to reorganize courses, and what to eliminate in the curriculum is a complex set of tasks. This article describes one solution to MBA course and curriculum redesign. An applied integrated management course on behavioral decision making was developed as part of a revision of an MBA degree program. The course is designed to encourage integrative thinking and builds on foundational coursework in economics, statistics, information systems, and organizational behavior. Details of course development and a course project are discussed. In general, student feedback on the course is positive.
