Program Overview

The Master of Business Administration Degree program at Andrews University is designed to help students gain the skills and knowledge necessary to pursue, advance to, or strengthen positions in international business, government, and non-profit organizations, among other settings. This program is able to be taken either on campus or online, depending on the needs or particular learning style of each student. The online delivery is intended to provide some flexibility in time and location of access to course materials to working professionals.

According to the program faculty, the instruction of this program emphasizes the combination of business and Christian principles in order to prepare students to function with critical thinking skills, sound judgment, morality and integrity. Though the majority of the distance version of this program can be completed online, students must attend campus for three weeks during their last summer semester for some intensive coursework.

    School Overview

    From the very start, back in 1874, Andrews University has placed serious scholarship, quality research and a strong focus on practical Christianity first on the list of things they think are important about attendance at a Christian university. Mr. Goodloe Bell, a teacher, started a tiny school with only 12 students in Battle Creek, Michigan. This was the birth of what is now known as Andrews University, later named after John Nevins Andrews (1829–1883), the biggest thinker in the 19th-century Seventh-day Adventist Church. Today, Andrews is the best-known Adventist educational institution in the world.

    Andrews boasts about 130 academic options to choose from, quality professors who care about your success, and lots of resources to keep students on track. They provide hands-on learning experiences, opportunities to learn inside and outside the classroom, and personal attention from faculty as a result of our small class-size and low student-faculty ratio.

    The School of Distance Education extends access to Adventist education beyond campus, community and national boundaries. We support our faculty and students around the world by promoting best practices in distance education and international partnerships, and by creating a virtual community designed to nurture learning. The School of Distance Education serves Andrews University by providing leadership, faculty and student support, and professional resources in the following areas: educational technology, distance education, compliance and off-campus programs.
