Earn a Quality, Affordable MBA at Concordia

Whether your goal is to advance in your current position, start a new business or become a community leader, the Concordia MBA is the next step in your journey to success.

The program is designed for professionals with a sincere desire to become ethical, competent leaders in their industry, community and family. As an MBA student, you will master core business concepts, quantitative tools and leadership skills to build a better future for yourself and your community.

Program Overview

Guest speakers, investment simulations, case studies, learning teams and a Capstone project are just some of the ways you will be exposed to real-world business issues and participate in making decisions that impact the organization and the wider community. Access to the IncubatorCTX, an on-campus entrepreneurial hub, allows students to interact with business innovators and community leaders and to reap the benefits of the hub’s programming.

Concordia's MBA intentionally focuses on a two-prong approach. Hard and soft skills are combined through a series of leadership courses nested in a relevant yet vibrant curriculum to maximize personal and professional growth opportunities.

Concordia's MBA program is flexible, so students can earn an MBA while working full time, either by attending evening class sessions every week or by completing coursework online. Our cohort learning model students to form a close-knit, supportive professional network. Classes are taught by faculty members with an average of 15 years of industry-leading experience in addition to a business-related doctorate. The experience and diverse backgrounds of our faculty offer exceptional value for our students.

Curriculum Overview for the MBA

As an MBA student, you will:

  • Complete 30 semester hours of coursework consisting of core business concepts, leadership modules and quantitative analytical tools,
  • Analyze case studies, complete practical assignments, reflect on your own leadership qualities, and challenge and support your fellow cohort members, and
  • Attend class sessions one evening per week for four hours — with the first class meeting from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. and the second from 8:00 to 10:00 p.m. — or take courses online.

The Concordia MBA program offers two optional concentrations: Healthcare Administration (HCA) and Organizational Development and Learning (ODL).

Students who opt to add a concentration to the MBA program begin taking HCA or ODL-specific courses in the fifth semester.

I valued the amount of emphasis put into presentation skills, research, critical thinking and networking. The Capstone project was extremely powerful and helped prepare me for my first job.
