Broad Relevance. Unbounded Opportunity.

Increasingly, an MBA degree is the minimum requirement for some of the best careers in management, finance, and other business areas. Norwich University’s Master of Business Administration (MBA) program, which is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP), equips working adults with the specialized skills and knowledge needed to transition to a career in the business arena or advance into a leadership role within their organizations.

Rooted in both theory and practice, our online MBA curriculum gives students a comprehensive foundation in core business areas including operations, finance, marketing, and strategic resource management as well as ongoing opportunities to apply that core knowledge to case studies and projects geared toward their workplaces and other organizations. Depending on their career goals, students can pursue a general MBA degree or focus their studies on one of six concentrations in project management, construction management, energy management, finance, organizational leadership, or supply chain management and logistics.

Our online MBA program culminates in an independent research project that students complete over the course of their final three concentration seminars. Using concepts learned in each seminar, students develop a set of strategies for identifying business solutions and achieving business improvement in their current workplaces or other relevant organizations. Depending on their case study subjects, students can present this substantive body of research to their current employers to generate immediate value within their organizations or use it as a work sample for prospective employers.

Program Goals

Students in the MBA program are expected to:

  • Have a working knowledge of the key concepts of Strategic Resource Management, Managerial Finance, Marketing Management, Operations Management, Project Management, Organizational Leadership, Supply Chain Management and Logistics, and Energy Management.
  • Understand and be able to apply the key concepts used in the primary functional areas of business management.
  • Acquire the critical and creative thinking skills to identify business problems and recommend implementable solutions that meet business objectives.
