Master of Business Administration
Our program is internationally recognized for having earned accreditation from AACSB International (the Association for the Advancement of Collegiate Schools of Business). We emphasize academic excellence and a commitment to continuous improvement.
In the Lasallian tradition, our program blends academic theory with the practical experiences of our diverse, highly motivated students and outstanding faculty. Classes are small so that you can get to know your classmates and professors well and learn in a dynamic atmosphere.
This M.B.A. program is offered at the Basel Chamber of Commerce. Each student takes 45 credits in the weekend format beginning in January or May. The program is completed in 15 months and is limited to 20 to 25 students. Students will travel to the United States for one week during the program.
The Admission Committee of the M.B.A. Program is concerned with each applicant's interest, aptitude, and potential for achievement in graduate business studies. The structure of the program lends itself to those students with or without an undergraduate degree in business administration.
Although there are no formal application deadlines, we recommend that all documents be submitted to us two months prior to the start of the program. The class size is limited and once the seats are filled, all applications will be deferred until the following year.
Because each applicant's background and profile is unique, the Admission Committee does not establish specific quantitative minimum requirements for admission; however, it does adhere to the accreditation standards established by the Association for the Advancement of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).
La Salle University does not discriminate against any applicant because of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, veteran status, or marital status. Admission is based solely upon an applicant's qualifications.
