Master's Degree in Business Administration

The Master of Business Administration program at Holy Names University prepares adult learners to deal with dynamic, complex changes in the working environment in the following ways:

  • Extensive preparation in the "core business areas," accounting, finance, marketing, management, as well as ethics and business strategy.
  • An in-depth introduction to leading-edge issues such as the quality movement, reengineering, mergers, acquisitions, new leadership styles, financial modeling, internet based funding, and managing in a global economy.
  • An emphasis on business ethics and socially responsible decision-making in all courses in our curriculum. Our classes are designed to help students exercise conscience while making professional organizational decisions.
  • A flexible program that can be completed in 12, 18, or 24 months (students take 1-3 courses per term) with an individual academic plan, which is not cohort based.
  • Optional academic calendars — classes held consecutively for seven weeks or every other weekend (Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays or Fridays 6:30-9:30p.m.; Saturdays 9 a.m.-12 noon or 1-4 p.m.), or once or twice a week for a semester.
  • Multiple start times: January, March, May, June, August, or October, and students can step in and out of terms as needed to fit their personal needs.
