About the Program

Are you a business professional who has been in the workplace full-time for at least three years? Are you looking for an M.B.A. that’s more innovative than most? Do you want to start solving real-world business problems right away? Do you want to prepare for a leadership position as a broad-based business professional?

If you answered “yes” to most of these questions, then you owe it to yourself to learn more about The Elmhurst MBA.

What You'll Learn

  • Develop and implement innovative solutions to real-world problems.
  • Gain not only cutting-edge business knowledge but also intensely practical business experience.
  • Develop the essential capacities of today’s business professional, including team building, analytical thinking, information technology, decision making, ethical sensitivity, communication, negotiation, and the ability to work in diverse environments.
  • Strengthen all the skills you’ll need to solve the most complex business problems.

A Flexible Format
This is a part-time evening program. Classes are flexible enough to accommodate the schedules of professionals with work and family commitments. You can complete the program in about two years by attending classes either completely online or evening classes on-campus.

In the first year, you will complete a schedule of courses together with your cohort. In your second year, you will select courses in your area of interest and study alongside students from several cohorts.

The MBA program at Elmhurst is designed for business professionals who have completed an undergraduate degree. Although you don’t need a major in business administration, you do need to complete some undergraduate business administration courses before beginning the MBA program.

Candidates for the MBA program must have completed the following prerequisites*:

•    Financial Accounting
•    Managerial Accounting
•    Business Finance

*The prerequisites can be met through the successful completion of online course MBA Prep 300 starting in Summer 2013. Contact the School for Professional Studies for further information at (630) 617-3300 or Prerequisites may also be completed as part of the student’s undergraduate coursework or transferred from another college or university.

You also need at least three years of full-time professional business experience. The program director may waive prerequisites based on your interview and professional experience.
