MBA graduates

We offer three graduate programs in business with foundations in leadership to help you achieve your professional goals. 

You may complete your Bluffton Leadership MBA online in either 12 or 22 months. Meet with your classmates via videoconferenced classes one night a week (two nights a week for the 12-month program). 

Bluffton’s MBA is focused on leadership development,  helping students understand management and leadership from a different perspective. Students will develop the knowledge needed to intereact with various business disciplines sich as accounting and marketing.

In addition, students can specialize in a concentration in:

  • Accounting and Financial Management
    The accounting and financial management concentration prepares students for leadership in the functional areas of finance and accounting in both for-profit and nonprofit contexts.  The content of these courses is related to the broad areas of responsibility of private and public accountants as well the needs of financial leaders.  
  • Health Care Management
    The health care management concentration will help students understand the economic and political environment of health care institutions, develop basic principles of health care financial management and familiarize themselves with the tools to understand and manage issues in the delivery of health care.

“It helped me become confident and assertive in ways I’ve never been before. The program focuses on practical ways to learn and grow in business which ultimately impacts far more than your professional life.”

Bluffton's MAOM focus and structure is similar to the Leadership MBA while giving the student the opportunity to engage in an individualize research project in an area of the student's own choice.

Most classes are integrated with the MBA courses and are delivered one night a week through online videoconferencing. 

In addition to the MAOM courses, students can elect to add a concentration in:

  • Accounting and Financial Management

  • Health Care Management
    The health care management concentration will help students understand the economic and political environment of health care institutions, develop basic principles of health care financial management and familiarize themselves with the tools to understand and manage issues in the delivery of health care.

“What’s great about Bluffton’s program is it isn’t cutthroat. It’s about learning from each other. It’s not as much about tests and memorizing, it’s what we learn from each other that sticks."
