We understand the challenges of earning your degree while juggling other commitments. Online programs are designed to make attending Azusa Pacific simple so you can reach your educational goals.

Flexible Format

The dynamic format of the Online MBA offers students the flexibility of taking courses wherever and whenever is most convenient for them. Students benefit from courses designed to maximize their interaction with other students and professors, creating a rich learning community. For many, the online format is the easiest, most convenient way to balance work, school, and family.

Convenient Schedule

APU’s School of Business and Management operates on a year-round schedule, with each academic year divided into nine-week sessions (see academic calendar for dates). Most students take one to two classes per session, completing their degree in 18–36 months. While students can choose to extend the length of their program past the average completion time by taking fewer units per term, the School of Business and Management requires completion of a graduate degree within five years of initial enrollment.

New students are accepted to the Online MBA program throughout the year. The application deadline is approximately four weeks before the start of any session. For more information or to get started, contact APU’s Office of Graduate Admissions at (626) 815-4570 or
