Master of Business Administration
Master of Business Administration

The Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) program at Benedictine University has prepared students for managerial roles in corporate and human service organizations for more than 40 years. Benedictine’s M.B.A. combines quantitative and qualitative courses to prepare you for the demands of contemporary business leadership in a complex, uncertain environment. The M.B.A. conveys practical knowledge and competence that is needed to better run organizations in a competitive environment.

Program Formats:

Benedictine University's Lisle campus M.B.A. Program is designed for working adults who seek flexibility in their course schedules, an academic concentration, and time to complete their degrees as part-time students. Our full-time Internship M.B.A. Program is developed specifically for recent college graduates, and offers a professional internship experience as the M.B.A. concentration. The Internship experience is supervised by a faculty advisor in order to prepare students without significant professional career experience for their future roles and responsibilities in the workplace. The full-time 4+1 M.B.A. Program is developed specifically for students who complete their undergraduate B.B.A. or B.S. degree, which allows them to complete the M.B.A. degree with one additional year of graduate study.

Additionally, the M.B.A. program is offered in an accelerated 18-month cohort format, available in-person and fully online.

M.B.A. Curriculum

Our curriculum requires 64 quarter credit hours of graduate course work and can be broken into three primary sections:

  1. Foundation: six courses build the framework for 600-level coursework.
  2. Managerial Process: seven courses focused on management skills & knowledge necessary for students seeking managerial positions in accounting
  3. Electives: students are required to choose three elective courses suited to their personal or professional interests.
Concentration Options

A unique feature of the Benedictine M.B.A. Program is the option to earn a concentration in one or more of over 20 areas. A concentration is earned by completing 12 elective credits from the specific courses designated for each concentration. Earning a concentration is optional, although the majority of M.B.A. students select at least one concentration. Students must comply with all course pre-requisites when planning a concentration.
