Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.)

On-campus. Workplace. Online.

Each modality of our Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) program is modeled after the University’s foundational graduate-level business courses and provides premier management expertise for those looking to launch a new career, move up in their organization or step into an advanced leadership position.

There are not only more job opportunities for employees who earn their master’s degree according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, but having an advanced degree, especially an M.B.A., is now required for many positions that once only required a bachelor’s degree.

  • Our program stresses values-based tactics and responsible strategic leadership while incorporating best practices and the latest technological tools for success within the global business market.

  • We recognize and value your work experience and have developed a program designed with the working professional in mind by allowing you to choose the format that best fits your scheduling needs.
  • You may also be able to earn a Benedictine M.B.A. faster (in less than two years) by transferring up to 32 credits toward your degree completion.

  • BenU is competitively priced and provides a diverse student experience through exposure to industries and opportunities outside of one's own field. Our faculty members also play a key role because they are global leaders who build personal relationships with you and facilitate access to an international network of business professionals.
Benedictine’s On-campus M.B.A.

The On-campus M.B.A. prepares professionals with at least two years of significant work experience for executive and managerial positions in business.

Students usually complete one-to-two courses per quarter in classes that meet once a week in the evening or on weekends on Benedictine’s main campus in Lisle in the Goodwin Hall of Business – an innovative business hub which includes the latest software and technological tools, including access to the Bloomberg Trading Lab.

Benedictine’s Workplace M.B.A.
