Online Fast-Track Master of Business Administration (MBA)
At Mount Vernon Nazarene University, we designed our Fast-Track Master of Business Administration (MBA) as an accelerated 100% online program for hard-working, highly motivated adults who don’t want to wait to advance in their career or take time off to attend school full time.
Modeled after our traditional MBA program, students earn the same number of credits and select a concentration while taking at least two courses at once. This accelerated MBA program can be finished in roughly one year’s time, give or take a few months, allowing graduates to achieve their education and career goals at their own pace.
MVNU structures the Fast-Track MBA around two formats:
- 11-month timeframe: students take two courses at the same time, from start to finish. Core and concentration courses are taken sequentially.
- 15-month timeframe: students take their three concentration classes while completing their core courses one at a time.
Adding to the accelerated format, MVNU schedules all MBA classes in six-week blocks.
Fast-Track MBA Highlights
The Fast-Track MBA reflects the overall mission of MVNU’s School of Graduate & Professional Studies (GPS). We base all course content and formats around the needs of today’s working adult—someone seeking to get ahead in the business world while not stepping back from their career to gain an advanced credential.
Our business programs particularly focus on market-ready skills that can be applied on the job, while the flexible, accelerated online format lets you complete your MBA around your day-to-day obligations at your own pace. At the same time, our cohort-based classroom model facilitates relationships between you, your professors, and fellow students, helping you build essential business contacts.
