Taught by world-class Christian faculty dedicated to student learning and development, the DBU Professional Online MBA equips you with experiential learning and a global perspective. The degree is designed for the working professional in pursuit of his/her next professional milestone at a reduced cost.

More than an Education

The purpose of the Professional Online Master of Business Administration is to prepare students for successful and rewarding executive careers in a diverse business environment in which "intrapreneurial" cultures must be the norm and organizational complexity is a way of life. Business faculty and staff members work closely with students to equip them with business knowledge, critical thinking/decision-making skills, and soft skills that are essential strengths for future executive employment and leadership opportunities. Students will learn through real-world projects that will hone skill development in areas such as creating successful business models, building and managing collaborative relationships with customers, vendors, and employees, and utilizing technology in ethical and effective ways. Further, the program will foster an innovation and strategic mindset from a Biblical worldview.
