Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.)
The College’s M.B.A. program equips students with leadership skills and business acumen to serve both the profit and notprofit sectors. The program offers a student-centered learning environment within a curriculum accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP).
The program begins with a set of core requirements (the “Common Professional Component”) ensuring that students in the program will be familiar with the fundamental areas of business practice and competency.
Following this “basic training,” students will complete 18-24 credits of advanced course work in one of the following concentrations:
- Health Care Management
- International Business
- Management of Nonprofit Organizations
- Comprehensive Track
- Comprehensive Track for students concurrently enrolled in the College’s M.S. degree in International Development and Service
By the end of the program, students complete a set of capstone courses, which cover the areas of business strategy, professional ethics, and global issues.
Students work closely with faculty who are active in the region’s business community to develop key analytical, critical thinking, communication, and problem-solving skills. This approach ensures graduates are equipped for ethical and responsible leadership roles in business, both nationally and internationally.
The College of Mount Saint Vincent welcomes applications from international students for its Master of Business Administration Program.
The M.B.A. Program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs. The ACBSP accreditation standards are modeled on the Baldridge National Quality Program, which focuses on a student-centered learning approach in the classroom.
The M.B.A. Program has been approved and is registered with the New York State Higher Education Department, under the HEGIS code of 0506.
