About MCLA’s MBA Program
The 45-credit 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. This five-course certificate provides either standalone advanced certification in business administration or fulfills the first 15 credits toward a Master of Business Administration at MCLA.

About MCLA’s Degree Completion program
The MCLA Degree Completion Program is designed for the adult learner seeking an accelerated, non-traditional pathway to completing their bachelor’s degree. Each program is conducted in a cohort-style learning format, in which students begin their course of study with a group of their peers and proceed through the program together. Classes are offered in the evening and online to help students balance work, family commitments, and their academic journey. Classes are offered one night a week at MCLA-Pittsfield, 66 Allen Street.
Students can earn a bachelor of science in business administration or a bachelor of arts in interdisciplinary studies. Students in the interdisciplinary program may focus on children, families, and society; leadership and business; health and human services; or may create an individualized plan of study with an advisor.
At MCLA, we’re here for all — and focused on each — of our students. Classes are taught by educators who care deeply about teaching, and about seeing their students thrive on every level of their lives. In nearly every way possible, the experience at MCLA is designed to elevate our students as individuals, as leaders, communicators, fully empowered to make their impressions on the world. In addition to our 125-year commitment to public education we have fortified our commitment to equitable academic excellence. For eight of the last 10 years, MCLA has been named a Top Ten College by U.S. News and World Report. MCLA also appears on the organization’s list of top National Public Liberal Arts Colleges, as well as on the top 50 schools in U.S. News’ Social Mobility Ranking, which measures how well schools graduate students who receive Federal Pell Grants.
