Online MBA OVERVIEW

The Malcolm Baldrige School of Business at Post University online MBA brings together the academic knowledge and practical tools necessary for success in the current business environment. The concepts of leadership, innovation and quality permeate every course offered in our curriculum.

The core of the MBA program is our focus on applications which can be put to use in any organization; Project Management, Financial Modeling, Organizational Dynamics, Competitive Intelligence and Business Strategy. These are not just academically rigorous courses, they also impart tools and knowledge that can be applied directly in our students’ current work environment to help their careers and their organizations flourish.

Our students then choose concentration areas to take coursework in and complete projects that directly apply principles discussed and learned about in class. Current concentrations areas are: Corporate Innovation, Entrepreneurship, Finance, Leadership, Marketing, Multidisciplinary, and Project Management.

The pinnacle of our program is the capstone courses. These courses have been developed to allow for the maximum reflection on the educational journey of our students, and for deep academic research and for practical, multidisciplinary, application of the lessons learned in the MBA program. This is an opportunity for our students to showcase all they have learned, and put in it into practice. We have had students help their communities with innovative projects for a Habitat for Humanity, students who have started their own businesses and students who have led their organizations to innovate and optimize their operations.

The Malcolm Baldrige School of Business at Post University online MBA – our program is forged in the fires of practical business application, grounded in leading edge academic theory, and guided by the ethical precepts of our namesake.
