Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.)

Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.)

The Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) program provides the opportunity to study at a level of complexity and specialization that extends the knowledge and intellectual maturity of students while requiring them to analyze, explore, question, reconsider, and synthesize old and new knowledge and skills. Upon completion of the program, students should have gained sufficient depth of education, specialized skills, and a sense of creative independence that will allow them to practice in and contribute to the business profession. The M.B.A. program provides quality business instruction from a Christian perspective.

Students may customize their program of study from the Standard M.B.A, a concentration in International Business, a concentration in Accounting, or a concentration in Human Resource Management. The Accounting concentration is designed for those pursuing the CPA. Prior accounting background is required. The Good Start track is designed for a student who does not have a prior background in business at the undergraduate level. Students provisionally accepted will also be required to enroll in the Good Start track. Additional undergraduate may be required depending on assessments taken in BUS-5010 and BUS-5011
