Master of Business Administration (MBA)

A high-level MBA qualification opens up a wealth of leadership opportunities. AUBH’s MBA, co-created with the Dean and Faculty from California State University Northridge’s David Nazarian College of Business and Economics, can accelerate a corporate career path or lay the foundation for the next tech startup, in both cross-regional and global markets. This degree is widely applicable across all industries; exploring the latest global business trends, the newest management tools and techniques, and challenging students to improve networks and collaboration.

Program Content

Our MBA program reinforces business fundamentals through a strong foundation of accounting, marketing and strategy. As students move through the two years, they master skills in leadership, creating partnerships, interpreting industry data, managing crises and negotiation techniques. Students then progress to chosen electives like International Business and Entrepreneurship and Innovation. Finally, led by supportive and practiced mentors, students complete a thesis paper on a subject that they find compelling, relating specifically to the field they want to pursue.

Who should apply?

This two-year degree program is an exciting choice for anyone looking to take an existing career to the next level, or for recent graduates to hone their business and management skills. In an economy characterized by intense competition, technological change and rapid growth of globalization, students with an MBA-level qualification and credentials will have the edge in career opportunities. An MBA is broad enough to be applicable to multiple sectors, while providing specific skills for management and real-world challenges. AUBH’s MBA shows students how to blaze their own paths, whether it leads them to the C-Suite, entrepreneurship or teaching businesses to thrive.
