Professional Online Master of Business Administration

The purpose of the fully online Master of Business Administration is to prepare students for successful and rewarding executive careers in a diverse business environment in which "intrapreneurial" cultures must be the norm and organizational complexity is a way of life. Business faculty and staff members work closely with students to equip them with the business knowledge, critical thinking/decision-making skills, and soft skills that are the essential strengths for future executive employment and leadership opportunities. Students will learn through real-world projects that will hone skill development in areas such as creating successful business models, building and managing collaborative relationships with customers, vendors, and employees, and utilizing technology in ethical and effective ways. Further, the program will foster an innovation mindset, strategic mindset, and biblical worldview. Distinct from the traditional MBA that is offered primarily in-person yet with flex and online capacities, the Online MBA has no concentrations. The degree is designed for the working professional in pursuit of his/her next professional and academic milestone.

ADMISSION INFORMATION

Program Distinctives

The Online MBA involves 36 credit hours of asynchronous courses at a reduced cost. The program is designed for students who cannot attend in-person classes due to work or geographic constraints, and who prefer a more self-directed approach to education rather than the in-person engagement with faculty and classmates in the physical or synchronously virtual classroom.

Distinct from the traditional MBA, the Online MBA does not offer elective or concentration courses.
