One-Year MBA

Main Campus Administration Building

Welcome! We are delighted to offer a one-year MBA for international students. Identical in curriculum to our two-year MBA for working professionals, this accelerated MBA better meets the needs of students who are seeking to earn their MBA in a shorter time frame.

The University of Redlands was founded in 1907, and is a private liberal arts university in Southern California. All of our programs are accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). Nearly 1,800 students are enrolled in the University’s School of Business, approximately half of whom are MBA candidates.

Our graduates' current salaries are ranked among the top 30 colleges in the country, with several success stories to their credit. With an emphasis on creating global citizens, the School of Business supports a number of international initiatives including study abroad programs around the globe, annual spring internships for students, global consultancies in the U.K., and virtual collaborations with students in Mexico.  

Classes are usually capped at 30, offering close student-faculty interactions, and many faculty have industry experience which lends itself very well to blending theory and practice.

We believe you will be transformed by your experience at Redlands, and appreciate your interest in this exciting MBA option.

Applications for the program are now being accepted. We encourage you to contact an admissions representative at 888-999-9844.
