The Master of Business Administration (MBA) Degree Program is an innovative program designed to meet the needs of practicing executives in profit and nonprofit settings. Offered in the popular Weekend Degree Program format and online, the MBA focuses on sharpening skills in decision-making and problem-solving behavior for professional administrators. The program’s instructional design integrates scientific and technological advances with proven principles of management.
The MBA has three concentration options:
Healthcare Management (also offered online)
Management (also offered online)
If your undergraduate degree is not in business, OLLU's MBA Bootcamp will help you get on track to an MBA faster. The bootcamp allows you to take all the needed prerequisites in one course.
The MBA program requires a commitment to an intensive educational experience as well as a considerable degree of independence and discipline. The format enables successful managers to continue to grow professionally without interruption of their careers, thus enhancing their competitive positioning in an increasingly sophisticated economic environment. Typical students are junior and senior managers who work in financial institutions, oil and utility companies, insurance and communications companies and other businesses, as well as health care professionals such as doctors, nurses and administrators.
The weekend format is based on the assumption that adult students, given a structured set of learning objectives and a prescribed methodology, can independently master a major portion of the content of most courses. Instructional contact hours in Weekend Degree Programs are fewer than in more traditional programs, so that much of the student’s work is teacher-directed learning outside the classroom. Some classes require team meetings to be held outside the regular classroom hours so that team projects can be completed in a timely and professional manner.
The MBA in Management and Healthcare Management are also offered online.
