What to expect

In the classroom

What can you expect? Expect a life-changing journey. Our classroom experience is dynamic, we bring students and faculty together from diverse backgrounds, both professionally and culturally. You will have the opportunity to learn, network, and share information with fellow students from around the world who are employed by local, regional, national, and global companies.

Outside the classroom

What can you expect? Expect to be challenged, our M.B.A. program will take you out of the classroom where you will put those in-class skills to the test with our real-world capstone consulting course. Why is this so important? Because learning doesn’t simply come from a course or a textbook, learning comes from doing.

Concentrations are available in Finance and Human Resource Management, or you may pursue a General M.B.A.

The M.B.A. Curriculum

Our AACSB-International accredited M.B.A. program requires 30 to 54 credit hours depending on your undergraduate background. Our program offers great flexibility, allowing you to pursue your degree on either a part-time or full-time basis. All of our courses are offered in the evening hours so students may continue to work while completing their degree. Classes are small and taught by dedicated faculty who are both skilled educators and experienced business professionals.

Two Phases

Our M.B.A. program consists of two phases and is designed to provide you with a flexible curriculum that can be achieved regardless of your education background.

Phase I

Phase I is designed for those students who do not have an undergraduate degree in business. This first phase of our program covers economics, accounting, management, finance, marketing, and management science.

Phase II

Phase II is the core of our M.B.A. and is designed for those students who are ready to take their business education to the next level. This phase immerses our students into a premier business management curriculum. The core of our program engages students with advanced managerial courses in finance, marketing, global strategy, business law and ethics, accounting, economics, organizational theory, and business consulting.
