he UVU Master of Business Administration is an applied graduate degree that reflects the Woodbury School of Business's long and distinguished history of providing excellence in business education. Our innovative team-based curriculum reaches beyond the walls and textbooks of a traditional program.


  • The Masters of Business Administration at UVU includes two distinct options, both of which offer emphases in accounting, finance, marketing, and management.
  • The Part-time Professional MBA Program leverages the management experiences of our professional students while focusing on application and practice through the use of group discussions, case studies, simulations, projects, and interaction with regional organizations and business leaders. Classes are held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings on the Orem campus which begins fall semester (August). Additionally, classes are held on Monday and Wednesday evenings (or Tuesday and Thursday evenings beginning in alternating years) at the Thanksgiving Point location which begins spring semester (January). The program is completed in six semesters over a two-year period.
  • The Full-time Accelerated MBA Program is designed to meet the needs of students who have completed their undergraduate degree and would like to continue their education through an enhanced one-year, three-semester program. The format requires a full-time effort as classes, workshops, and events are scheduled throughout the week. Due to the rigorous demands of this program, employment during enrollment is limited to 15-20 hours per week. Courses concentrate on real-world and engaged activities designed to assist students as they prepare to enter the business world.
  • The MBA program embraces the university’s designation as an engaged learning campus. Students immerse themselves in all aspects of business management, including accounting, leadership, marketing, economics, ethics, and social responsibility. Throughout the program, students will participate in several integration modules designed to assimilate the various functions of business through simulations, comprehensive case studies and real-world learning projects.
