Master of Business Administration (MBA)

An MBA suited for you 

We get it — you are considering an MBA because you have specific goals to accomplish. Perhaps you want to pave the way for advancement opportunities or pursue a new career direction. Perhaps you are seeking the personal fulfillment of continuing your education and earning a new degree. Whatever your motivation, earning an MBA and achieving your goals takes a lot of hard work.

Pursue your MBA, your way. We offer two concentrations within our MBA program: leadership coaching and management.

Both concentrations consist of the “MBA Core,” which includes eight courses totaling 24 credit hours. The MBA Core consists of courses such as Leading Leaders, Building Healthy Culture and Performance, and Business Research Methods. Each concentration contains four additional specialized courses totaling 12 credit hours, for a total of a 36-credit hour MBA.

“I would recommend this program for anyone looking to pursue their MBA in a non-traditional classroom setting. The experiential and immersive learning aspects of the program are extremely unique and add great value to the students. I feel the program has helped me in my day-to-day tasks and allowed me to see things from a different perspective.”
