About

Structured as a general preparation for managerial careers, the MBA prepares students for positions of responsibility in business, education, and government. The program is offered in the evening and provides the versatility of either part-time or full-time study. Each course meets one night a week, M-TH. The program is available to all qualified students regardless of undergraduate major. Our program challenges students with problems that require them to address all relevant dimensions of key decisions in a new way. Students will experience an approach that will require them to integrate their existing knowledge base, and "blend and blur" across functional disciplines in much the way they will be required to throughout their professional lives. The program consists of a foundation phase and a graduate phase. Students may have completed some or all of the foundation requirements through their undergraduate degree programs.

Accreditation

Our program is the only AACSB International accredited program in the region.  AACSB is the premier accrediting agency for business programs.  AACSB accreditation is very difficult to obtain and is a mark of high quality that is recognized worldwide.
