Overview

bsTall

Gain the practical knowledge and skills needed to become a top business leader. No GMAT required.

The online MBA program from Jessup prepares working professionals to advance in their business career. This pragmatic program emphasizes practical solutions that can be immediately applied in the workplace upon graduation. The degree is based heavily on entrepreneurship and innovation to further equip you for long-term success throughout your career. If entrepreneurship is not your calling, you will become qualified to assume influential roles in middle or upper management within an organization. In addition, the program’s accessible online format provides you with the flexibility to study during your own time.

During the first year of the program, you will acquire fundamental skills in accounting, economics and e-commerce. Key areas of study include supply chain management, leadership and ethics, international business, project management and strategic planning. As you move into the program’s second half, you will study real-world applications, such as marketing strategy and innovation and technology. You will also complete a one-year, hands-on entrepreneurship project that will help you cultivate relationships with the local business community and other professionals. The project is guided by local entrepreneurs who work with student teams to design and implement business plans for startup companies and angel investors.

Our online MBA faculty members are experts in their fields and have held positions such as CEO, marketing director and vice president of finance.
