Great Investment! The 10-Month MBA
Students who have the motivation and drive to complete an MBA program will find the tools to succeed in today’s business world at Northern Arizona University. The MBA at NAU is an intensive, accelerated, full-time 10-month program beginning in August and ending with graduation in May each year. The MBA also offers a full-time 18-month program for non-business majors. Both formats enable students to reduce the overall cost of pursuing an MBA and limit the time spent away from the workforce.
Our MBA offers a team-based and innovative core curriculum designed to teach students how to identify, analyze, and solve problems within an enterprise-wide perspective. Working within this framework enables holistic problem solving and develops the essential global skills vital to today’s successful business professionals. Students can specialize in accounting, distribution management, enterprise systems, finance, management, or geographic information systems.
For three consecutive years, NAU has been ranked among the outstanding American business schools in the Princeton Review's Best Business Schools. Students say our program is "intense and fun at the same time," leaving them "better prepared and more knowledgeable in major business functions such as marketing, management, finance, and accounting." Editors of the Princeton Review also highlight NAU's wonderful new business building with its "modern-yet-retro" feel, designed to be a great place to study and network.
The MBA at NAU is fully accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AASCB), and accounting graduates meet the CPA educational requirements for Arizona and other jurisdictions.
Our high faculty-to-student ratio means a great deal of personalized attention. Enrollment is limited each year to keep student quality high and to ensure that students receive the full attention of the faculty and administration.
Special program features include business communication development through individualized training and workshops to further develop oral and written communication skills. The program also features a professional development course in which students work with a career counselor on a personal basis and the chance to network with current professionals in areas of interest and take field trips to observe various agencies.
Our students graduate with the expertise to work for companies like Vanguard, American Express Financial Services, Deloitte, Ernst & Young, Goodrich, Target, The Nature Conservancy, Shea Homes, and Intel, among many others.
Interviews begin in March each year. The deadline for application materials is March 1 for international students and May 1 for US citizens.
