The MBA program can be completed in 16 or 24 months – four or five semesters. Two or three courses are taken per term, depending on program length. Terms begin in August, December, and April. Students may enter the program at any term.
While the majority of the coursework is completed online, students join a small cohort that meets in either Fort Wayne or Indianapolis every other month – 8 times total for the accelerated program. Residencies, which span Friday evening to Saturday afternoon, enhance the online class discussion and provide opportunities for professional development and networking. MBA students also participate in a ten-day global business tour to Europe, Latin America, or Asia, during which students learn practical application of global marketing, management and cultural nuances by visiting leading corporations.
“This program has the perfect mix of online and in-class activity. Enough time exists to build rapport with the students and faculty face-to-face, while also allowing for the flexibility of completing assignments via online. The personal touch is always available if that is what the student needs to succeed.” Chelsea DuKate, MBA student

Faculty & Staff
“The professors here are experienced, interested and invested in you. Beyond the academic study that will lead to a job, the interaction with professors has been integral to the faith integration you get with this program. Many other programs will help you advance in your career, but the mentoring you get from the faculty and staff has been important to me.” Michael Borton, MBA alumnus

Staff members create a hassle-free experience for students. A few ways they support students each term is by automatically processing registrations and ordering books to be shipped directly to students. The staff also serves as a one-stop shop for student questions and concerns.
