Master of Business Administration

The master of business administration, or MBA, at Pacific University is an innovative and horizon-broadening program that prepares students to work in a multitude of careers. With a core curriculum based in fundamental business principles, the program provides students with specialized knowledge and skills, as well as insights into innovative theories.

Designed for experienced and aspiring professionals, the MBA at Pacific University helps students broaden their knowledge, launch notable careers, and become leaders in the field. Students develop targeted skills by selecting the concentration best suited to their career aspirations — human resources, finance/accounting, or small business development (entrepreneurship).

You will be empowered to unleash your creative ideas, and you will be guided by solid business knowledge in supply chain, accounting, finance and organizational behavior. With current business basics under your belt, you will be engaged in the application of your knowledge to create real businesses, work with local industries, be mentored by successful entrepreneurs and, at all steps, be encouraged in innovative, out-of-the-box thinking.

Your ideas can change the world. Are you ready to learn how to put them into practice?
