The online MBA with a concentration in General Business is offered by Longwood University. This is a flexible program designed to meet each student’s unique situation and schedule. In addition to the flexibility offered by online courses, students still become part of the learning community during the on-campus summer residencies, so it is the best of both worlds. Courses prepare you for the rapidly changing nature of the modern business world. You will develop a broad array of strategic and analytical skills. The General Business concentration also offers the knowledge needed to climb the ladder in all types of businesses, from Fortune 500 companies to entrepreneurial organizations to nonprofit entities.
