Master of Business Administration

16 months = $30,000
for students with BBA

The MBA program at Houston Baptist University is structured to provide students the knowledge, skills, and abilities vital for all aspects of management. Students enrolled in this innovative and flexible program will complete the core courses of 33 semester hours.  Students will take leveling courses (16 hours) if they do not have an undergraduate BBA degree. An optional 9 hours of specialization in a functional area is available for students interested in pursuing this path.  The program includes the option of an international travel course at no additional cost.

Unlike many other MBA programs which require a prescribed set of courses on a 'locked-in' schedule (e.g., Friday/Saturday, or Monday/ Wednesday evenings), HBU offers courses four nights per week. Each class meets one night a week from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday. This schedule allows students to balance work and personal obligations more easily. In addition, HBU's MBA program grants rolling admissions. This means, when a student is ready to enter the program, he/she need not wait until the traditional fall start date to begin. Instead, he/she can commence course work in August, January, or June.

Students find HBU's smaller classes allow rich interaction with professors who know students by name and who are available to their students. Many students find valuable mentors in their professors. This personal attention truly sets Houston Baptist's MBA program apart from the competition, and it is one of the reasons so many HBU alumni refer colleagues to the program.
