Master of Business Administration (MBA)
The School of Business and Engineering offers a master of business administration (MBA) program for working adults and full-time students.
The MBA program provides individuals with a broad professional education and acquaints them with the theories, principles and strategies needed for successful careers in business.
Beyond acquiring the knowledge of course content and an understanding of business systems, students are taught to be innovative in their approach to solving problems and making decisions. Exposure to sound ethical standards and skill development in the areas of negotiation, cooperation, and interpersonal relations are an integral part of the curriculum. Graduates are action-oriented and can effectively apply the competencies and skills they have acquired in the Quinnipiac MBA program.
The MBA program is a total of 46 credits. This includes a 34 credit core and 12 credits of electives. Students can choose to take electives within one discipline for greater depth of knowledge in that area, or spread their electives across various disciplines for a broad-based view.
Electives are available in accounting, finance, health administration, information technology, international business, management and marketing.
In addition to the regular MBA program, Quinnipiac offers three specialized tracks:
- Chartered Financial Analyst® certification--for MBA students whose career choices require more extensive finance training
- Supply chain management track--for students whose careers involve coordinating the functions, processes and enterprise associated with the order-fulfillment cycle
- Health care management track--prepares students for administrative roles in the health care industry.
These programs are also a total of 46 credits, including a 22 credit core and 24 credits of specialized courses.
Courses are offered in a traditional classroom format, online and in a limited-residency hybrid format.
The School of Business and Engineering is accredited by AACSB International, a voluntary national accreditation earned by only 30 percent of the business schools in America.
U.S. News & World Report ranked Quinnipiac in the top 10 of northern universities offering a full range of undergraduate and master-level programs.
