The SUU MBA program produces capable business leaders who are prepared with the necessary knowledge and skills to make high quality business decisions in either an entrepreneurial or staff capacity. Small class sizes and a highly qualified faculty, with both academic and professional experience, ensure our students obtain a solid foundation of people and technical skills. Through a process of active learning, our graduates become confident leaders who think critically, engage in continued discovery and can translate business theory into practice in an ethically and socially responsible manner.

While we provide our MBA students with a solid foundation of human and technical management knowledge and skills, a hallmark of our program is the opportunity for students to pursue projects and mentored study on issues of their own interest. Our commitment to this process of active learning is driven by our desire to produce confident leaders who can think critically, engage in a process of discovery, and implement appropriate policies.
