The Graduate Program in Business Administration offers a student-centered learning environment to produce responsible, innovative business leaders in an ever-changing global environment. It also prepares students as entrepreneurial thinkers, to enhance business competitiveness in a global environment. The significance is placed on applying business knowledge and techniques to implement decisions.
To meet students’ personal and professional needs, the MBA Program offers a combination of 8-week; 16-week and intensive 2-week summer sessions allowing completion of this program in as few as 18 months, enabling graduates to take advantage of the current market demands.
The MBA degree may be earned entirely through the traditional face-to-face delivery method, through online delivery, or a combination of these methods. The traditional face-to-face courses are conveniently offered as evening courses one night a week at our campuses in the Kansas City, MO area. The online courses offer flexibility, without sacrificing rigor and academic excellence.
The MBA curriculum is designed with the working professional in mind. Students will be expected to engage in team assignments and be given the opportunity to obtain hands-on knowledge through the analysis of case studies.
