Master of Business Administration / Organizational Leadership
Norwich University

Program Details

The mission of the Master of Business Administration program is to contribute to Norwich University’s goals by providing high-quality outcomes for graduates in the areas of experiential learning, leadership, creativity, and critical thinking.

More Than How to Succeed in Business

Does the world really need more business school graduates? After the recent financial meltdown and failures of leadership, there are probably many people asking themselves whether Wall Street or Main Street would benefit from another MBA. Norwich believes that people of integrity with a strong moral foundation and personal ethics are needed in business today more than ever.

With the complexity of the financial markets, the interconnectedness of the global system and the speed with which modern enterprises adapt to technology, the knowledge and skills acquired in a graduate-level business program are critical. Couple that with the courage to lead and you’ve arrived at something in short supply: the qualities that typify the Norwich MBA.
