University rank #801 (QS) , WI,
With the global environment of business changing at a pace unlike any other time, students demand that their business school offers curriculum that changes right along with it.


The Marquette University Graduate School of Management’s MBA Program is designed to develop ethical global leaders with a broad business, economic and social perspective – leaders who are capable of managing change in dynamic environments at every level. The curriculum covers all functional areas of business but puts a unique emphasis on topics such as society, ethics and global business. We offer practical education with business career application in each and every class. Students learn and work in an environment that benefits both.

We offer international experiences that meet the needs of the working professional and add an entirely new dimension to the notion of global learning. This all adds up to an educational experience that takes careers to the next level and beyond.


Marquette is accredited through The Higher Learning Commission which last affirmed the university’s accreditation in 2014 and has scheduled the next comprehensive evaluation for the 2023-24 academic year.

Thanks to Marquette's consistently high standards, specific academic programs also are accredited through numerous other organizations and associations.

These accreditations assure students that Marquette's academic excellence is nationally recognized.

In addition, students have the security of knowing that Marquette's credits can transfer to comparable institutions of learning, just as incoming transfer students can be assured that Marquette is likely to honor most credits earned at a similarly accredited college or university.
