Mission of the MBA Program
The Anderson University MBA Program produces professionally-prepared graduates through courses that integrate the Christian faith with business concepts. The College of Business fulfills the University’s mission by challenging the students in an atmosphere of sound professional ethics which affirm biblical teachings in a secular business world. The degree is designed to allow graduates to satisfy goals such as professional development, career advancement, personal growth, or job mobility.
The Master of Business Administration (MBA) is a general management program which emphasizes an integration of the business disciplines within a Christian,ethical framework. It is designed for students with an undergraduate degree in either business or in a non-related field. When required, leveling courses (prerequisites) are offered for the non-business undergraduate. Business undergraduates may or may not require leveling courses before beginning their graduate study. Courses are taught primarily for MBA students. Thirty-six hours are required for graduation.
The program is traditional in its course offerings but nontraditional in its scheduling. It is designed for the working professional. Each on-campus course meets in the evening once a week for six weeks at University Center of Greenville. Each week consists of two segments. One segment meets as a traditional, four-hour class and the other segment convenes online for group/case work during the rest of the week. Typically, only one course is taken at a time.
