Master of Business Administration

We get it.

You’ve decided that you want more out of your job, be it a greater challenge, additional responsibilities, or a leadership position. But you don’t have the luxury of taking a lot of time away from your job to get your MBA.

This is why we’ve made our MBA program as flexible as it is rewarding. We offer two online options – a traditional approach using video lectures, textbook study, and online assignments – and a live-online approach in which students and the instructor meet to discuss issues and solve problems just like in a traditional classroom. All live classes meet in the late afternoon / early evening to accommodate busy work and personal schedules. You pick the option that works best with your hectic schedule.

So you can get more out of your job and more out of your life.
