Master of Business Administration (MBA)
The Master of Business Administration (MBA) is a professional program providing you the knowledge necessary to become a more effective leader who embraces a high-level worldview of organizations and a strategic thinker who embodies an analytical approach to business. Courses in finance, marketing, management, entrepreneurship, investments, project management and more, will increase your operational understanding of the functional areas of business, give you the tools to apply critical thinking skills to managerial decisions, and provide a framework for strategic planning that applies to all areas of business. The MBA has four emphasis areas allowing you the flexibility to customize your degree.
