Master of Business Administration Requirements

Director:  Darell Singleterry, M.B.A.


The AACSB accredited M.B.A. program at the University of New Haven is designed to transform current and future business leaders by providing in-depth expertise in the discipline of business administration and management, while concurrently exposing students to high impact learning practices and a global business perspective.  Such perspectives are essential to operating in today's increasingly complex, collaborative, and multi-national business context.  The program ensures that students build their functional knowledge base and hone leadership skills to become a strategic, collaborative, and corporate thinker, ready to navigate the business challenges professionals are faced with today.

The M.B.A. program is designed to be flexible and serve the needs of a diverse student population.  It is offered in part- and full-time formats with day and night courses, delivered in a mixture of traditional, hybrid, and online formats.  It is designed for both seasoned professionals and those with little or no experience in business.

The program is built on a series of foundational courses in the core business areas of accounting, finance, and economics.  This foundation is followed by a set of advanced program core courses that are essential to managerial success in areas such as analytical decision-making, value creation, and leadership.

Each of the program's eight concentrations are designed to provide students with competencies in areas of modern business challenges for career success.
