Degree Overview

The Master of Business Administration (MBA) Program is designed to provide students with the skills and knowledge necessary to become leaders in business and in administration. It seeks to develop decision makers with strong analytical skills who are socially responsible, sensitive to cultural diversity and aware of the broadening world market. The Online MBA program currently offers the Accounting concentration, Healthcare Management concentrationManagement concentration, and Human Resources Management concentration as fully online programs.

Students enrolled in the MBA program may request to enroll in one additional concentration if they are currently enrolled and have a GPA of 3.00 or higher. Students may choose a dual concentration option after their first semester. Students who have been approved for a dual concentration option must complete the course requirements for each concentration.  Courses completed can only be counted once towards one concentration.  Students approved for a dual concentration will be required to meet the requirements for the catalog year in which their dual concentration is approved.

The management and human resource management concentrations cannot be combined as a dual concentration option. Therefore, dual concentration options are:

  • Management/Accounting
  • Management/Health Care Management
  • Accounting/Human Resources Management
  • Accounting/Health Care Management
  • Human Resources Management/Health Care Management

Students seeking a dual concentration complete a Dual Concentration Request Form, found on the Registrar’s forms page.

Two-Year Course Rotation

Although I recently graduated with a bachelor's degree, I was unable to find employment. I approached Joseph E. McAloon and, after discussing the benefits of the MBA program with him, decided to enroll. The program has changed my life. It gave me the chance to meet new people and network, allowed me to learn in a professional environment, and will provide me with new career opportunities.
