Program Description

Utah Valley University offers two distinct MBA tracks. The professional, part-time, Master of Business Administration track is an applied graduate degree that reflects the Woodbury School of Business’s long and distinguished history of providing excellence in business education. Our innovative team-based curriculum reaches beyond the walls and textbooks of a traditional program and is geared toward students with a moderate level of business management experience. This professional program leverages the management experiences of our professional students while focusing on application and practice through the use of group discussions, case studies, simulations, projects, and interaction with regional organizations and business leaders. The two year program offers two areas of emphasis in management or accounting and meets on Tuesday and Thursday evenings—an ideal schedule for enterprising professionals.

Our full-time accelerated Master of Business Administration option is designed to meet the needs of students that have completed their undergraduate degree and would like to continue their education through a one-year, three semester, accelerated program. This curriculum requires a full-time effort, as classes, workshops, and events are scheduled throughout the week. Due to the rigorous demands of this program, employment during enrollment is discouraged. Courses concentrate on real-world and engaged activities designed to assist students as they prepare to enter the business world.  Two areas of emphasis are offered – business management and accounting.

The MBA program embraces the university’s designation as an engaged learning campus. Students immerse themselves in all aspects of business management, including accounting, leadership, marketing, economics, ethics, and social responsibility. Throughout the program, students will participate in several integration modules, designed to integrate the various functions of business through projects, simulations, and comprehensive case studies.

Prerequisites

All prerequisite and proficiency courses must be completed prior to beginning the program. The prerequisite courses for Finance and Business Statistics taken within the last five years with a “C” grade or better by April 1 of each year, meet the prerequisite requirement.

Students may elect to fulfill their prerequisites through the successful completion of on-line course “boot camps” through UVU’s Continuing Education Department.  These self-paced courses have been developed by Woodbury School of Business faculty and are designed to prepare students for the rigor of their MBA program.  These courses are not for credit. Registration and payment are through the Continuing Education Department.  Contact the MBA office for additional information.
