One of Minnesota's largest MBA programs

Personal attention. Global perspective. Emphasis on ethics and values.

Our program builds on the history and success of our Master of Arts in Management program, but focuses on the hard business skills necessary to operate a business.

Students learn the same technical skills taught in many MBA programs, but we also focus on the cultural competence that's required for success in an international business environment and the ethical understanding that's required to make effective long-term decisions.

International experience

To provide our students with the best international education possible, we offer our capstone abroad program in Russia and China. We've chosen to focus on the emerging BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, China) economies as they have been the global growth leaders in recent years.

This program provides students:

  • A broad knowledge base in all areas of business
  • Strong technical skills
  • Professional and personal effectiveness
  • Capabilities in leadership and change management
  • An understanding of the cultural and ethical aspects of the international business environment
  • The option of international experience in an emerging market


The MBA program is offered in an accelerated format at the following locations.

Dual degree option

By taking an additional 17 credits, students can complete our Master of Arts in Management program as well and graduate with both an MBA and an MAM. The two degrees provide an excellent complement to each other, with the MAM focusing on the soft skills required to manage people and the MBA focusing on the hard skills necessary to run a business.
