Further Your Leadership Skills and Help Others Succeed with the Master’s in Management
Azusa Pacific University’s School of Business and Management offers a customizable, Christ-centered Master of Business Management (MBM) that prepares ethical leaders capable of adapting to the changing business landscape. This master’s in management program teaches managers and leaders how to effectively motivate employees to exceed market expectations, improve competency levels and job performance, guide their organizations to invest in their workforce, and recruit, hire, and train the right individuals. Program graduates become experts in positively steering organizational change and creating a culture of teamwork.
You Decide What, When, and Where to Study
The School of Business and Management gives MBM students the freedom to structure the program based on their individual schedules and career interests. All MBM students complete the same required core of business courses, then choose from a broad range of concentrations, including entrepreneurship, human resource management, international business, marketing, organizational development and change, organizational science, and sport management. Students also get to choose when and where to study: face-to-face instruction in a classroom, or online classes; at the main campus in Azusa, or at one of three regional campuses. You can even mix and match delivery formats—for example, studying at Azusa one semester and either online or at a regional campus the next. Full-time students who take advantage of online, afternoon, and evening courses can graduate in as little as 12 months.
