Mount Saint Mary’s MBA Program offers concentrations in Entrepreneurship/Social Entrepreneurship, Organizational Leadership and Project Management. For over 60 years, Mount Saint Mary’s faculty have been preparing business students for professional careers in Accounting, Marketing, Management and International Business. Many of our successful alumni have come back to experience once again the Mount’s tradition of caring and academic excellence as they return for an MBA. The Mount Saint Mary’s MBA is offered in a weekend format to individuals holding a Bachelor’s Degree in any field. Those without undergraduate business preparation are offered Business Foundations courses as they enter the weekend MBA program. Those with undergraduate business degrees enter directly into their first semester of cohort study.
Mount Saint Mary’s graduate programs are offered on our downtown Los Angeles campus located on the beautiful, historic Doheny estate. If you are considering relocating or commuting to earn an MBA, Los Angeles offers world class civic and cultural opportunities as well as an international business environment that informs the curriculum. The Mount Saint Mary’s MBA Program is affordable, accessible, and carries the name of one of Southern California's highly respected private universities. Established in 1925, Mount Saint Mary’s is accredited by WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC). The MBA Program accreditation was reaffirmed by WASC for a new ten-year period in 2014. We invite you to join the next weekend MBA cohort to take the next step in your career as a manager, entrepreneur, or organizational leader!
The Mount Saint Mary’s MBA program includes one semester of "Foundations" courses which may be waived if the applicant documents successful completion of equivalent courses in his or her undergraduate studies. The program spans eighteen months and is designed to meet the global need for effective leaders who can guide change by using value-based decision-making.
The MBA Program's distinguished faculty will prepare you to meet the challenges of today’s business environment by offering an innovative, collaborative and globally oriented curriculum. The program is designed with the understanding that managers face global and cross-disciplinary challenges on a daily basis. These global challenges are not merely studied at the theoretical level. Every Mount Saint Mary’s MBA student participates in an international study trip to gain hands-on experience outside the U.S. and as part of this requirement, learns to prepare a country and industry analysis.
A unique feature of the masters in business administration program is that it replaces the traditional course-by-course masters curriculum with theme-based modules. By blending business disciplines that are traditionally kept separate (like marketing, finance, and business law), you will develop the “big picture” view of how disciplines come together in a real business environment. You will also have an opportunity in your final semester to choose a concentration in Entrepreneurship/Social Entrepreneurship, Organizational Leadership, or Project Management. The program culminates in a real world final project where your team works with a company or non-profit to solve a business problem, market a new product or service, or develop a strategy for future growth.
The Mount Saint Mary's MBA Program is focused on today's dynamic, fluid, and complex global business environment that requires successful business leaders to understand and respond to patterns and market conditions in constant flux.
