Lindner MBA Programs

It's your degree

A Lindner MBA will help you build skills and develop talents in a way that will open the right doors for you. Our program is small, personalized, customized, and immersive.

The program is uniquely designed to fit each student's specific needs and consists of 48 credit hours: 10 credit hours of foundation classes, 26 credit hours of core classes, and 12 credit hours of electives.

For recent graduates and those with relevant work experience, the 10 credit hours of foundation classes can be waived. The 12 credit hours of electives can be used to customize your MBA to fit your specific needs by earning one of our 20+ graduate certificates.

Enrich your MBA experience by participating in one of our immersive study abroad experiences, which are required for full-time cohort students, by visiting with your personal career coach, or by getting involved in one of the country's most dynamic business communities.
