Masters of Business Administration Overview

Greenville University's MBA offers two delivery methods, on-campus and online. The MBA program is identical for both delivery methods. 


One-Year MBA

The one-year Master of Business Administration equips you for the demands of contemporary leadership in a complex business environment. It focuses on the area of business management with education on such topics as management, accounting, finance, strategy and marketing.

Our curriculum prioritizes real-world experience. All faculty possess terminal degrees and career experience in the profession, and classwork will bring you into contact with current managers and organizational leaders. Hands-on learning methods and case studies invite reflection on practices encountered in real world circumstances, culminating in a capstone action research project.

The one-year MBA allows students to develop new skills and hone their previous experiences to find employment after completing two semesters in the program. Students are encouraged to utilize Career Services to assist them in propelling their career forward. Students can set individualized appointments with a career services advisor and attend the annual university fair that attracts a wide variety of industries.

Effective Learning for the Workplace

A wide variety of master's level business programs exist, and one of your most difficult choices is deciding which program fits your needs. Greenville's Master of Business Administration degree is ideal for students who want to develop business administration skills. The program emphasizes highly relevant, workplace-based situations by requiring students to produce a Capstone Action Research Project.
