About MCLA’s MBA Program  

The MBA program offers a broad-based, multidisciplinary education that combines the strengths of our business faculty at the doctoral and master’s levels with those of practicing managers actively involved in day-to-day decision making in the field. Courses include a blend of classroom experience and practical, hands-on fieldwork.


The Graduate Certificate in Business Administration is for those who have a bachelor’s degree but did not major in business administration.
