Program Description:

The Canisius One Year Master’s in Business Administration (MBA) is an accelerated, cohort MBA designed for students with any undergraduate major. There are no business prerequisites to apply to this program - cohorts are comprised of students with a variety of undergraduate degrees and backgrounds.

The One-Year MBA typlically enrolls a small cohort of 25 to 30 students who move through the program as a group, providing a support network and fostering team-building skills.  Students attend classes full-time during the day for the fall, spring, and summer semesters, with the program starting in late August and concluding in mid-August of the following year. Choose from four concentrations: Financial Services, General Business, International and Marketing.

The One-Year MBA program is an integrated curriculum designed around business decision-making processes. After learning basic concepts, you will follow a two-phase approach: formulation and implementation. The formulation phase shows you how to identify business problems, recognize the key issues involved and develop solutions. The implementation phase presents information on how to introduce solutions into the organization and evaluate results. Students are assigned to a professional mentor - a WNY business executive who provides career guidance and serves as a networking resource.   Students can also take advantage of a two-week study abroad option in Europe.
