Online Graduate programs in business

Opportunities include:

  • Online Master of Business Administration (MBA)
    At Bluffton, you can complete your MBA completely online. Choose the 12-month accelerated format or supplement your 24-month MBA with a concentration to support your career aspirations. Through our MBA program you will develop a general set of management skills while the concentration will focus on a specific area.  The concentration will consist of three or four specialized elective classes.
    • Accounting and Financial Management Concentration
    • Leadership Concentration
  • Master of Arts in Organizational Management
    The focus and structure of Bluffton’s Master of Arts in Organizational Management (MAOM) is similar to the MBA while giving the student the opportunity to engage in an individualized research project in an area of the student’s choice.
  • Online Collaborative MBA
    The Collaborative MBA, a joint program of Eastern Mennonite University, Goshen College and Canadian Mennonite University, focuses on Leadership for the Common Good. The Collaborative MBA is not eligible for the Bluffton Alumni Grant program.
