The College of Business Administration offers a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree with three options for study: a part-time Lockstep Evening MBA; a Professional MBA at regional campuses; and an Executive MBA at the Downtown Campus.

The Professional MBA (PMBA) is the ideal solution for successful working professionals who wish to earn an MBA degree accredited by AASCB International without interrupting their full-time career. The PMBA combines the rigor and depth of a traditional MBA program with the convenient evening schedule, applicability, and cohort experience of a professional program. This program is a cohort, taught in 6 sessions over a 24-month period. The Executive MBA (EMBA) is the Center's flagship program, designed with middle-and-senior level executives in mind. This program (cohort, five sessions over 19 months) allows participants to continue their full-time careers while earning a fully accredited MBA degree that incorporates the interactions and backgrounds of the participants as an integral part of the learning experience. The objective of the Ph.D in Business Administration is to prepare students for academic careers in higher education and management careers within profit and nonprofit organizations. Success in the program is judged by the student’s understanding of the issues and methodologies essential to the advancement of knowledge. Tracks include Accounting, Finance, Management, and Marketing.
