Gain the strategic perspective, analytic abilities, business knowledge, and leadership and management skills to deliver strong financial performance while mindfully making a positive impact on society and the environment. Being part of a school of business and public policy gives you a unique opportunity to explore issues from multiple perspectives.


Our Master of Business Administration (MBA) Program emphasizes the four pillars of social responsibility and shared value: ethical decision making and governance, social and community accountability, diversity and inclusion, and environmental sustainability. These values are integrated throughout our curriculum, our cocurricular activities, and our partnerships with organizations that share similar values. Throughout the curriculum, our faculty emphasize real-world applications and learning from both theory and practice.

Our school was founded to prepare women for business leadership, and today we have a vibrant community that welcomes all genders. Our business programs are distinguished among graduate business schools by the rich diversity of identities, experiences, and perspectives of our students. Mills is an important source of talent for employers seeking to strengthen diversity within their managerial and leadership levels.
