Lead Business Transformation with an MBA
Azusa Pacific University’s School of Business and Management offers a customizable, Christ-centered Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree program that prepares ethical leaders capable of adapting to the changing business landscape. This program teaches working professionals the key concepts and skills, both analytical and relational, to be successful managers and leaders in business and society.
You Decide What, When, and Where to Study
The School of Business and Management gives MBA students the freedom to structure the program based on their individual schedules and career interests. All MBA students complete the same required core of business courses, then choose from a broad range of concentrations, including accounting, entrepreneurship, finance, international business, marketing, 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.
