The MBA program at Mount Saint Mary’s University is an intimate, sixteen-month business program designed to empower ambitious executives and working professionals with the tools they need to transform their organizations and manage the multitude of issues confronted by today’s business leaders.

Mount Saint Mary’s unique and innovative approach to leadership development and business education consists of four theme-based, modules that are designed to help business professionals integrate external business information with the strengths and opportunities of their organizations, leadership, and human capital.

In Module 1, executives focus on analyzing and interpreting external socioeconomic events and the impact they have on the organization. In Module 2, students learn to assess and leverage an organization’s internal capabilities in order to obtain sustainable strategic advantage. Professionals then examine productivity measures and explore the role of the board of directors and other key stakeholders in streamlining processes in Module 3. During this module, students will broaden their perspective by participating in an international field-study program. Having gained knowledge in interpreting external and internal conditions, each participant will then focus on a concentration in Module 4: Project Management, Organizational Leadership, and Entrepreneurship. Participants will also work on a team-based final capstone project, which emphasizes application of the tools learned. After graduation, alumni of the MBA Program may audit additional concentration courses free of charge.

To accommodate the most talented managers and executives in Los Angeles, Mount Saint Mary’s offers its MBA program in a weekend-only format. Class sessions meet on alternating weekends, for a total of six weekends per semester. Courses are conveniently held at Mount Saint Mary’s beautiful and historic Doheny campus in downtown Los Angeles. Total tuition cost for the MBA program is $43,504 for the 2018-19 academic year. Tuition is inclusive of all student-associated fees, and it also includes room and board for the program’s nine-day international field study in China.
