Master of Business Administration
The Redlands MBA (Master of Business Administration) program addresses the unique challenges that you will face in an increasingly fluid, technology-driven and global environment. With a careful blend of conceptual knowledge, critical thinking skills and practical exercises, you will focus on developing the skills you need to:
- Apply business knowledge in many different situations
- Communicate effectively
- Understand multiple perspectives of a problem
- Use ethical reasoning to determine how a proposed solution may affect your company and the wider community
At Redlands, you will learn not only to think critically, but to take that level of thinking and effect change in socially and ethically responsible ways.
The foundation in the liberal arts that grounds your MBA will be fundamental in developing your ability to be both innovative and decisive--driven by a true sense of purposefulness. Likewise, the skills you hone in written and oral and communication will help you outperform those who cannot clearly articulate their purpose and intentions.
Our students are an equal mix of males and females. They range in age from 25 to 55. 64% are married and 63% have children. Most are employed full-time while completing their MBA: many as mid-career managers ready to advance their careers; others seeking new career paths, or new skill sets needed to stay current and marketable. They select Redlands for its reputation, its relevance, its teaching excellence and its convenience. Upon graduation, our MBA graduates join an impressive network of nearly 50,000 University of Redlands alumni.
MBA classes meet one evening a week. Class sessions include seminars, lectures, case analyses, online exercises and group activities. Student interaction inside and outside of the classroom is encouraged and is considered key to a successful experience. Students may take advantage of online career services, personalized academic advising, one-to-one mentoring opportunities, study abroad courses and speaker’s bureau events. All MBA candidates may choose from five (optional) MBA emphases including: Finance, Geographic Information Systems, Global Business, Information Systems and Marketing. These courses are delivered in a web-enhanced format and often bring together students from multiple California campuses.
