Master of Business Administration

Stay ahead with an MBA

The speed at which the business world moves today is staggering. Quinnipiac University's online master of business administration program prepares you by giving you the resources you need to lead and thrive, even in the fast-moving field of global business. You will leave the program knowing how to make informed decisions, work across cultures and lead organizations of all natures, sizes and structures.

Even if you are a full-time professional, the program helps you master the skills needed to advance without interrupting your busy work schedule. Fundamentals such as accounting, finance and marketing are balanced by emphasis on interpersonal and professional skills, such as collaboration, effective communication, ethical reasoning, problem-solving and recognition of opportunity – skills that can't be fully grasped from a textbook.

Perhaps most important, the program enables you to master the art of decision-making – the most critical quality of successful business leaders.
