For experienced working professionals looking to earn a Master’s in Business Administration at a time and place that works for them, University of La Verne’s MBA for Experienced Professionals degree is an excellent fit. The program is tailored to those with at least three years of experience who want to take the next step toward leadership positions in their careers.

To provide maximum convenience and flexibility, the program is offered online and is also available in hybrid format at several of our campus locations throughout California, including La Verne, Bakersfield, Burbank, Irvine, Ontario, and Santa Clarita, as well as at Vandenberg Space Force Base and Naval Base Ventura County.

The program helps students learn relevant skills and apply them in their workplace. Students gain solid communication, teamwork, and leadership skills from faculty with diverse business backgrounds. Students also learn problem-solving techniques and gain a strategic understanding of the functional and operational areas of business.

In class, students put these skills to the test, giving them practical experience for their careers. Students graduate with the ability to utilize information technology, allocate financial resources, design an effective organization, improve productivity, craft a strategic plan, and communicate effectively.

The program offers eleven concentrations so students can receive a graduate education tailored to their field, including: accounting, finance, human resource management, information technology, international business, management and leadership, organizational development, nonprofit management, marketing, supply chain management, and health services management.
