Graduate degrees

Pursuing an MBA, specialized Master's degree or a PhD is not for everyone. It requires dedication - a dedication of your time, money and energy. At Lindner, we put the same level of dedication into our programs.  We offer our students nationally-ranked degree programs, as well as more specialization options than any other university in the Tristate.

When you walk out of our doors you will be armed with something even more important than a diploma: competitive advantage. Our graduates leave with a real mastery of business knowledge that employers seek.

    Specialization is the future. That’s why we offer seven masters degrees in addition to our MBA programs. In as little as 12 months, you can fully master a new discipline and significantly propel your career and earning power.
  • MBA
    We recently revamped the Lindner Master of Business Administration program to make our nationally-ranked program even better. Build your own part-time or full-time MBA based on your goals and interests in the times and places that work best for YOU (in as little as 12 months).
    PhD programs at Lindner are designed to provide the background and skills necessary to conduct independent research and prepare students for a primary career in teaching and research.  Visit our PhD program page to see areas of concentration and learn more.
    These shorter programs help our students gain specific, specialized knowledge of a business function. We offer more than a dozen graduate certificates in areas such as Marketing, Corporate Finance, Market Research and Innovation.
