Master of Business Administration

The Master of Business Administration (MBA) is a 30-hour rigorous business education for professionals seeking career advancement. MBA students cover core topics including management, marketing, accounting, leadership, data analysis, communications, logistics, law, ethics, organizational behavior, and strategy.

Is this your online degree program?

The MBA does not require an undergraduate business degree. Our MBA honors the historic roots of the MBA as a business education for working professionals. Business degrees are just one possible start. So are chemistry, English literature, Christian studies, nursing, or anthropology.

What is critical is fulltime professional experience. If your goal is organizational leadership and rock star analytical abilities, and you’ve been in the “real world” for a bit, the MBA is your degree.

Master of Science in Information Systems

The Master of Science in Information Systems (MSIS) is a 30-hour degree providing advanced education to start or further a career in information technologies. MSIS students focus on technology management, database management, IT infrastructure, data mining, basic programming skills, ERP systems, information security, and system implementation.

Is this your degree?

MSIS students come from all backgrounds. Most often we see students with undergraduate degrees in computer science, engineering, and information systems, but students with business, science, or other degrees also do well. Professional experience is always helpful, but not a prerequisite.

If your goal is technology leadership or technology immersion, you probably have what it takes to earn your MSIS degree.

Master of Science in Accounting

The Master of Science in Accounting (MSA) is a 30-hour advanced accounting education to prepare students for the CPA, CMA, and CGMA exams. MSA students receive boot-camp-like reviews leading to advanced topics in auditing, tax, cost accounting, fraud examination, not-for-profit accounting, and ethics.

Is this your degree?

This is the only degree with a prerequisite undergraduate education - a degree in accounting or the equivalent coursework. The MSA is intentionally designed to be completed by accounting graduates who have entered the field but need to complete their requisite hours and course load to sit for certification exams. Its structure is work friendly, with limited trips to campus and an emphasis on distance-learning technology.

If your goal is to become a successful accountant, either public or private, the MSA is your degree.

Master of Science in Management

The Master of Science in Management (MSM) program contains a 30-hour curriculum that includes courses to help build communication, client management, business process management, budgeting/forecasting, people management, and project management skills. While gaining a knowledge of core business topics, students will acquire an understanding of how to address the issues and challenges of managing the dynamic environment inherent in today’s enterprise.

Is this your degree?

The Master of Science in Management (M.S.M) is designed for students with degrees in technical fields such as Computer Science or Engineering seeking management acumen. While technical expertise is in demand, being able to bridge the gap between technical and business areas is a valuable and unique skill set. The MSM is also appropriate for students with an undergraduate degree in a liberal arts field who would like to enter the business world, as well as undergraduate business majors seeking an advanced management degree prior to entering the workforce.
