Master of Business Administration

About the Program

Students in the Master of Business Administration (MBA) program design solutions and strategies for complex business problems and opportunities; evaluate personal management capabilities and design a plan for economic growth; and integrate critical analysis with disciplines such as management, finance and economics, or an accounting specialization.

IWU students will synthesize ethical standards in decision-making and strategy development, create appropriate communication strategies to achieve organizational goals and integrate a biblical framework from a Christian university that guides interactions within the business environment and workplace.

Upon degree completion of the adult MBA program, you will be able demonstrate the following abilities:

  • Develop, execute and evaluate complex business plans
  • Assess personal management strengths and weaknesses
  • Plan, organize and evaluate daily business activities of yourself and others
  • Use resources in an efficient, effective, ethical and humanitarian way

Our accredited MBA program emphasizes the acquisition of technical management skills within a peer group or management team context. Each course in this Master’s degree program 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. Courses are taken one at a time in sequential order.

For students who prefer distance education, the program may be completed online. If you prefer a classroom experience instead of distance learning, this business graduate program is offered in LexingtonFlorence, Kentucky; Cincinnati, Columbus, Dayton, Ohio; and also at our Indiana campus locations.
