The business world today grapples with globalization of markets, rapid technological changes, growing cultural diversification of the work force and a renewed ethical standard for businesses. How does a business person analyze, assess and provide sound strategies in the face of such rapid and overwhelming change?

Designed for the working adult, the Master of Business Administration (MBA) program synthesizes practical issues, such as business management, information systems, finance and regulatory restraints, with strategic issues such as leadership, group processes and decision analysis. To provide flexibility for adult learners, the program has been designed to be delivered through distance education online over the Internet in a team-oriented format, from which students can draw from real-world problems in the business environments in which they work or from simulated case studies. The online faculty will help facilitate a collaborative learning environment for the student.


The objectives of the program are to help graduates prepare to participate in business management and leadership activities upon graduation; provide graduate instruction to help students develop business skills and knowledge to pursue advancement within their chosen career field; foster critical thinking, communication and teamwork while reinforcing both the theoretical and applied principles of business management; and offer services that can help facilitate the adult students successful completion of the graduate program of study.
