About this program

Online Master of Business Administration - iMBA

The Biggest Business School Innovation of the Decade

“We’ve disrupted our own industry, and the market has responded by rewarding us with demand and growth far beyond what we would have predicted,” Dean Jeffrey Brown.

Students say the iMBA curriculum and live, interactive sessions are more personal and engaging than many in-person classes they’ve taken. At a price that is a fraction of what they would pay at most residential MBA programs, the iMBA consistently earns satisfaction ratings near 100 percent from students.

College officials say student satisfaction and real-time return on investment are driving the tremendous growth in applications. A survey of graduates through 2021 showed that 61 percent had received a promotion, job offer or accepted a new position during their time in the iMBA program, while graduates saw their pay increase an average of 22 percent during the course of their studies.
