Our College of Business is Among the Top 5% Worldwide
The MBA program is designed to transform current and future business leaders. Build your knowledge base and hone your skills to become a strategic, collaborative, and corporate thinker, ready to navigate the business challenges professionals are faced with today.
Recognized nationally as a leader in experiential education, the University of New Haven offers a flexible part-time and a full-time AACSB-accredited MBA program designed for both seasoned professionals and those with little or no experience in the business. The program is built on a series of foundational courses in core business subjects like accounting, finance, and economics followed by a series of advanced courses and a selection of electives or courses in a concentration area. Each of the program’s seven concentrations provides students with a specific subset of coursework to prepare them for their anticipated career path. For students with recent coursework in business, the foundation business classes (up to 4.5 credits) may be waived. For many full-time students, the MBA can be completed in one year.
Students may pursue the degree by taking classes offered in a full-time day format or flexible evening format. Hybrid and online classes are also available. Classes are offered at our Orange Campus, which boasts a beautiful location, smart-classrooms, and small group workspaces to foster a dynamic, collaborative student and faculty experience.
