New Flexible and Saturday MBA Information Session June 17
5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
Now is a great time to consider a Master’s degree. Our New Flexible MBA or Saturday MBA programs might be a great fit for you. Your undergraduate degree doesn’t need to be in business to pursue our Masters or Certificate programs.

The New Flexible MBA offers flexibility with evening classes and a variety of concentrations including the new interdisciplinary concentration which allows you to take up to nine credits of Graduate Coursework outside of business. A student can concentrate on math, engineering, law, biology or a combination of classes. This concentration is ideal for students with undergraduate degrees in science, engineering, math and a host of other fields.

Our New Saturday MBA is available on the Wayne and Medina campuses. Classes meet every two weeks on Saturday. The program is designed for a cohort of students to take all classes together and graduate in two years. The first cohort class begins in August 2011.

We also offer high-quality AACSB accredited programs in other areas:

M. Taxation-a highly acclaimed specialized program for accounting and tax professionals.

MS Management- a specialized program with concentrations in human resources and information systems

MS Accountancy-provides you with preparation in professional accounting necessary for CPA certification.

Certificate Programs-15 credits in human resources, e-business, management of technology and innovation, IT project management, and health care management (No GMAT required!)

Joint Degree Programs with the School of Law for the Flexible MBA and M Tax programs.

Accelerated Programs - BS/MS Accountancy and Accelerated MSM Information Systems Programs can be started while pursuing a UA undergraduate degree.

All degrees and majors are welcome!

Find out more about what knowledge of business can do for you. Meet with advisors to discuss program requirements, like the GMAT, and determine what program is right for you.

The Akron Flexible MBA – Fit for your future!
