MCLA’s MBA program is among the most affordable in the Northeast. The most recent graduating class scored in the 89th percentile on Peregrine’s national examination, which is taken by graduates at all accredited business schools.

The 45-credit MBA program offers a broad-based, multidisciplinary education that combines the strengths of our business faculty at the doctoral and master’s levels with those of practicing managers actively involved in day-to-day decision making in the field. Courses include a blend of classroom experience and practical, hands-on fieldwork.

The Graduate Certificate in Business Administration is for those who have a bachelor’s degree but did not major in business administration. This five-course certificate provides either standalone advanced certification in business administration or fulfills the first 15 credits toward a Master of Business Administration at MCLA.
