Master of Business Administration (MBA)
The Master of Business Administration (MBA) program is a general management program that emphasizes an integration of the business disciplines within a Christian framework. It is designed for students with an undergraduate degree in either business or a non-related field. Leveling courses (prerequisites) are offered for the non-business undergraduate. Business undergraduates may or may not require leveling courses before beginning their graduate study.
The MBA program consists of 36 credit hours that are structured in a convenient 6-week class format for working adults. Skilled and experienced professors with real-world expertise instruct the courses and will work directly with you to expand your knowledge and improve your skills. Students will study the areas of human resources, financing, accounting, economics, management, and marketing. Courses are a combination of seminars, case studies, and simulations, and the entire program can be completed in less than 20 months.
Anderson's MBA program offers Leveling Courses to candidates to help satisfy admission requirements. Leveling courses do not count toward graduation.
Students holding undergraduate degrees in business from a regionally or nationally accredited college or university go directly into graduate courses. Students holding nonbusiness undergraduate degrees from a regionally or nationally accredited institution will be considered for graduate courses only after all prerequisites have been completed.
All applicants must satisfy the following prerequisites:
2. Financial Accounting
3. Statistics or Quantitative Methods
*The leveling courses are offered on demand
The prospective MBA student may elect to meet the prerequisites in one of three ways:
1. The College of Business offers independent studies for MBA candidates who do not have prerequisites in Accounting, Finance/Economics, and/or Statistics. Students work on an individual basis with faculty members to complete these prerequisites for admission into the MBA program. Independent studies are approved and scheduled by the Director of the MBA program.
2. Complete the appropriate leveling course(s) offered by Anderson University with a grade of “C” or higher.
3. Complete the appropriate undergraduate course(s) at Anderson University or other accredited institutions with a “C” or higher.
