Flexible • Self-Paced • Only 10 Courses • Professional Certificates
The core content of the MBA program provides the fundamental business knowledge that students need to become effective managers in any industry. The program offers graduate-level education in accounting, finance, marketing, economics and statistics, IT, and leadership.
Additionally, the program culminates in a comprehensive capstone course that requires students to apply the core principles from the program in an experiential, simulated business setting. The option of industry-focused certificates allows students to further specialize industry-specific skill sets. These certificates are available in healthcare, cyber management and analytics, and banking.
The MBA program is designed to accommodate the demands of our students’ everyday lives. It allows students to pursue a degree at a pace that is comfortable for them, in as little as one calendar year, or spanned out across several years, if necessary. The program allows for the flexibility of taking semesters off or raising/reducing course loads with each semester.
Students who come out of high school with dual-enrollment credits have the opportunity to finish their undergraduate degrees in less than four years. Tech’s MBA program offers a four-year pathway to multiple degrees.
