No standardized test scores or minimum professional work experience is required to apply to the program.

The MBA@American curriculum focuses on experiential learning and emphasizes the importance of connections rather than competition. Students build foundational skills across a range of business fields and can select from five career-focused concentrations of study.

In addition to online courses and assignments, MBA@American students attend in-person immersion experiences known as Business in the Capital.
