Master of Business Administration

MBA Degree Program Overview

The Master of Business Administration (MBA) offers the opportunity to develop a sophisticated understanding of the business enterprise and all its functional elements (i.e., marketing, leadership/management, operations, finance, and accounting). In addition, students matriculating in the MBA program can specialize in one business area for even more depth (see table below).

A Regis MBA degree is unique because it also develops graduates who are ethical leaders, who have the courage to implement disruptive change when needed, and whose every decision is ultimately guided by the desire to serve the worlds needs wisely.

Help Influence Your Career with the General MBA Degree

The General MBA degree offers a well-rounded, influential business education including a strong introduction to business law and strategy, change management, economics and financial decision making, international business, leadership, marketing and operations management.

In the General MBA degree program you will study the foundations and functions of business and the global environment in which business operates, open doors to maximize earning power, develop managerial expertise through applications-oriented instruction and enhance your self-confidence to become an innovative, influential leader.

Career-Specific Specializations

In addition to earning a general MBA, the Regis University MBA degree offers six areas of specialization, plus a bilingual MBA degree option, to allow students to enhance their current job knowledge and expand future career opportunities.

It is possible to complete a Master of Business Administration with a dual specialization. It is important to note that each specialization requires nine (9) hours of elective courses in addition to the core and specialization course work. The electives taken to satisfy the requirements for one specialization cannot be used to satisfy the requirements for the other specialization.
