Located at the heart of Los Angeles’ business and creative economies, Woodbury University offers an innovative MBA program that secures career progress through design-thinking skills and lucrative connections.

It delivers a practice-based, advanced degree that is flexible, recognizing that many students are already immersed in the working world. It also provides students with pertinent and engaging subjects, such as ethics, leadership and sustainability, that are important in today’s national and global environments.

One of the oldest business programs in the West, Woodbury’s School of Business is among the 5 percent of schools globally accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).

Importantly, the GMAT or GRE are not required to enter the program, and it’s open to all students with business and non-business degrees.

Woodbury’s MBA program is distinguished by a rotating team of executives-in-residence, world-class faculty and a range of civic engagement experiences, all aimed at preparing students for superb and mindful business performance.

Woodbury also offers a 3+1 program that combines both a BBA in Management and a Master’s in Business Administration, enabling students to earn both their undergraduate degree and an MBA in just four years.

An MBA is invaluable and even essential in many fields. Financial stability over a lifetime is one clear, compelling rationale: statistics indicate that those with graduate degrees can expect to earn 17,000 to 25,000 dollars per year more on average across various industries than those without. But there are more than monetary rewards, some of which accrue from building expertise and being exposed to socially-conscious business practices that are embedded into the foundations of the program.

Woodbury’s MBA program currently offers two concentration options: Leadership-Global Strategy and Accounting-Finance. Students may also select a general degree with a free choice of electives. Regardless of their choice, Woodbury’s MBA students gain entrepreneurial, morally responsible, and change-prepared skills. The flexible program offers an intensive 36-credit curriculum, with one-year and two-year completion options, structured around seven-week sessions, offered in evening and weekend format.

Woodbury’s 15:1 student/faculty ratio creates a highly personalized setting where MBA students receive the mentoring required to achieve career success.

Students emerge from the MBA program with a sound knowledge base in accounting, finance, marketing, leadership and strategy, along with the networking skills needed to advance to the next level and beyond.
