Programme Description

The Master of Business Administration (MBA) is a 41-credit hour program designed to meet the worldwide need for knowledgeable, the principle-centered leadership of organizations. Intended to prepare managers as both economic and ethical leaders, the MBA program emphasizes the integration and application of knowledge.

Specializations in:
- Accounting
- Applied Management
- Health Care Management


Students connect with business; the connection deepens and broadens as their programs proceed. New knowledge, skills, and tools quickly form the basis of leadership in business decision-making. To that end, the class structure deals with both the qualitative and quantitative skills required of today's managers.

The MBA program emphasizes the acquisition of technical management skills within a peer group or management team context. Each course requires the adoption of an individual and cooperative approach to problem-solving. Written problem analysis is required throughout the program, as is the development of presentation skills.

The curriculum will be completed in the order established by Indiana Wesleyan University. The university reserves the right to modify the curriculum as necessary.

The MBA graduate will demonstrate the following abilities:

1. Develop, execute, and evaluate complex business plans;
2. Assess personal management strengths and weaknesses;
3. Plan, organise and evaluate daily business activities for themselves and others. Graduates will use resources in an efficient, effective, ethical, and humanitarian way.
