An Master of Business Administration at Ferris State University provides a graduate with a comprehensive perspective on management and the business environment and tools and methods to approach and successfully solve complex business challenges in the global marketplace.


The Ferris Master of Business Administration combines a strong core curriculum focused on key business competencies with deeper learning in a specialty the student chooses.

While MBA courses cannot replace the value of work experience, courses designed specifically with a focus on a management perspective-- managerial accounting, managerial finance, strategic management-- provide students with experience in problem solving, interpretation, case analysis, and policy development in many different business contexts. 

This structured learning ensures that students can apply these lessons in their work environment, maximizing the effect of education and experience.

The Nursing concentration allows MBA students who hold a RN license to select their 9-credit concentration from the Master of Nursing curriculum at Ferris State University's College of Health Professions. Suggested MSN courses would be Advanced Nursing Roles, Health Care Systems Policy and Advocacy, Critique of Evidence for Practice, Quality Improvement and Safety, and Nursing Research Methods and Analysis.
