Full-time study in the MBA program is available to both business degree undergraduates and those with Bachelor degrees in other areas. Please see the Admissions Requirements tab on this page, and call us to learn more about whether this program is right for you.

Courses are specifically tailored to students’ potential career paths, including Accounting, Entrepreneurship, Finance, General Management, Human Resource Management, and Marketing and Sales. Small cohorts of 15-20 students allow for a rich and collaborative learning environment, in which students are exposed to case studies, business opportunities and field study experiences. Students have the option to study abroad through Van Loan’s branch campus in Madrid, Spain, and ongoing partnerships in Hong Kong, Athens and Mexico City.  Studying abroad is often highly valued as students enter an increasingly global working world.
