What is a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree?
The MBA is a graduate management degree, or as more commonly known, a “professional degree”. Most full-time MBA programs can be completed in two years, while part-time MBA programs can range from 2 1/2 to 4 years. Accredited MBA programs are members of the AACSB, the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business. You might be interested in knowing that certain non-accredited schools/programs can have reputable regional standings that can possibly meet your professional needs too. Speak with school and corporate/business representatives to assess how accreditation can determine your selection of MBA programs. In addition to the MBA degree, there are other management degrees which include: Master of Science in Business Administration (MSBA), Master of Public Administration (MPA), Master of Science in Administration (MSIA), Master of Public and Private Management (MPPM), and Master of Management (MM).
