GPS: Master of Business Administration (MBA)

The focus of Wheeling Jesuit University's Master of Business Administration (MBA) program is "leadership." The program offers opportunity to gain or enhance the knowledge and skills essential to effective leadership in organizations, from start-ups and small enterprises to large corporations.

The program examines, from a general management perspective, the function and interrelationships of the various elements of a typical business organization, from product or service development to marketing and finance, from human resources and strategic planning to customer service, from accounting to quality assurance. It explores the internal and external forces which strengthen and limit businesses and the ethical implications of organizational behavior.

The ultimate objective of the program is to help students develop the capacity to make and implement successful leadership decisions in an increasingly complex and fast-changing business environment.
