Why Choose the Master of Business Administration with Nursing Concentration?
The 39-48 semester hour MBA is intended for individuals who are interested in acquiring the management skills required to meet the competitive challenges facing today's organizations. The MBA is founded on the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award criteria for excellence and performance-metric-based management principles. Though relatively new, performance-metric-based management is already a widely adopted, systems-approach to managing and leading organizations.
The curricula consists of three courses focusing on foundation knowledge (may be waived based upon demonstrated competency), a professional skills course, seven core courses, an integrating capstone project, and four courses with a Nursing concentration, focusing on nursing specific effective leadership systems.
MBA courses are offered in a 7-week Internet format. Working individuals taking just one course every seven weeks can complete degree requirements in as little as two years. Full time students may complete degree requirements in as few as 16 months.
