Master of Business Administration
Earning a Master's in Business Administration (MBA) can help professionals enhance their career opportunities, receive increased compensation, and job promotions. An MBA can provide the skills and knowledge necessary to start a new business, and many employers require an MBA for certain management or leadership positions.
MBA coursework involves a broad spectrum of business-related topics including accounting, statistics, economics, communications, management, and strategy. An MBA not only prepares students to work for financial institutions such as banks but also prepare them for management positions in other fields or as founders of start-up companies.
The Master of Business Administration and our graduate business programs are designed with the working professional in mind.
The NJCU School of Business MBA:

- Offers a customizable degree process and simplified curriculum management

An MBA is a 36-credit course of study that includes a common core of 18 credits regardless of discipline and 18 credits in the specialization, including a final capstone.
Sample Degree Maps are based on full-time status. Full-time for graduate learners is defined as taking nine credits or more in a term. Term is defined as an academic time period during which the school holds classes. It may refer to scheduled fall, winter intersession, spring, or summer sessions. This is a sample degree map and sequence for required course work. Individual plans may vary based on specific learner needs.
