Master of Business Administration

Lakeland College is an educational community where students and faculty share academic goals and join in a common intellectual quest. The search for knowledge and understanding and the critical examination of ideas, values and actions are central activities of the college.

The Lakeland College Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) degree, designed with the working adult in mind, provides a broad-based professional education consisting of post-graduate coursework that integrates research, case studies, technology and other learning processes.

The objectives include an understanding of business and economic problems, and the development and refinement of managerial skills to address these problems in the context of an ethical and global workplace.

Additional MBA degrees are also available:

Lakeland's M.B.A. program is tailored to fit the schedules of both working professionals as well as traditional students: students can complete their degrees at a pace that fits their careers and personal schedules. Full-time students can complete their programs in less than two years and part-time students can complete their programs in three to five years without compromising typical work schedules.
