The Masters in Business Administration started with the first course offerings in August 2008. It is a general management degree program that develops business professionals with an emphasis on ethical perspectives. The learning environment provides practical applications of the theories of management, with a knowledge base that integrates distinct concepts and models of the business world. It is designed for those who desire a professional degree for today’s ever-changing world. Here at Anderson University (AU), we believe that the business world needs ethically prepared leaders now more than ever. Our goal is to do this by focusing on business combined with ethics while preparing graduates to make sound business decisions.
AU’s MBA is a challenging program and is also a life-changing experience. It is more than just obtaining additional knowledge. It is about cultivating critical thinking and analytical skills to solve problems that may be encountered anytime in the future. The real world does not revolve around a textbook! Rather, it presents opportunities for solving problems. Solving problems is an especially difficult task in today’s ethically challenged business world. Getting an MBA from AU uniquely prepares students with both business knowledge and ethically sound skills for creative problem solving that is desperately needed in the business world. Once an education is obtained, it cannot be taken away or lost. It is something that brings value to one’s life continually. At AU we are developing integrity driven leaders for the business world of tomorrow.
The program is traditional in its course offerings but nontraditional in its scheduling and ethical approach. It is designed for the working professional. Here at AU, we offer both online and on campus hybrid courses. The online platform is designed for those individuals who are not able to attend classes on campus. The online format creates the flexibility to continue to work while pursuing your MBA degree.
We look forward to helping you prepare for the future.
