Our 30-credit-hour program (10-courses) offers a General MBA Concentration that can be completed in as little as one year, but you are allowed five years to fulfill the degree in the classroom or online.

Follow the instructions in the Application Checklist to apply.

Your Courses

The program is available online and on campus. The courses are offered during the fall, winter, spring, and summer, with 10-week courses each term. To accommodate busy schedules, courses offered on campus meet only once a week for 3.5 hours.

Special Notice for CPA Candidates:  The MBA degree provides the student with a degree beyond the Bachelor in Accounting Degree and at the same time fulfills the new state requirements.  Those desiring to sit for the CPA examination and pursue a Master’s Degree to fulfill the 150-hour requirement can accomplish both within the MBA program at Quincy University.
