About

As long as the Master of Business Administration has been offered at the University of Baltimore, we've kept the needs of business in mind. Our program was built with the advice and expertise of the Baltimore business community, our esteemed alumni, and current and prospective students and faculty.

Inspired by real-world business challenges

In higher education, sometimes course curriculum is created behind closed doors—theory does not always go hand in hand with practice. Our approach is different. We consult with business leaders from some of the area's top companies. We survey students and alumni. We hold focus groups. We conduct secondary research. It is essential that the UB MBA meet the needs of the students we serve and the business community that hires them.

The Merrick School of Business MBA is built around six principal themes:

We've maximized contemporary business themes and integrated them in a more holistically way, which in turn reduces the silo effect often found in other MBA programs. Every course in UB's MBA program fits into at least one or more these themes. 

  • Managing Innovation and Strategy
  • Leading and Managing People
  • Interfacing with External Stakeholders
  • Managing the Value Chain
  • Managing Performance and Risk
  • Leveraging Technology and Business Intelligence
An amazing opportunity

The MBA remains a smart, highly prized degree. In fact, it’s likely more necessary now than ever before. But like any product or service, it must be adapted as the demands of the market change. We have a MBA that prepares you for an intense, globally connected world. This is the MBA of your bright, rewarding future.

Accreditation

AACSB International accreditation ensures that we are offering you a quality program that may help you today - but ultimately provide you with the knowledge and skills for tomorrow.
