About the Program
Our Master of Business Administration (MBA) Program emphasizes the four pillars of social responsibility and shared value: ethical decision making and governance, social and community accountability, diversity and inclusion, and environmental sustainability. These values are integrated throughout our curriculum, our cocurricular activities, and our partnerships with organizations that share similar values. Throughout the curriculum, our faculty emphasize real-world applications and learning from both theory and practice.
Our school was founded to prepare women for business leadership, and today we have a vibrant community that welcomes all genders. Our business programs are distinguished among graduate business schools by the rich diversity of identities, experiences, and perspectives of our students. Mills is an important source of talent for employers seeking to strengthen diversity within their managerial and leadership levels.
To accommodate working professionals, all required business courses are offered in late afternoon or evening time slots at least once during each academic year. A few courses may also be available during the summer or January terms.
Complete an MBA in two years of full-time study or two to four years part time.
Students who have completed substantial business course work at other institutions can complete the MBA in one year of full-time study.
MBA with a Concentration in Education
If you’re interested in business administration and educational leadership, this option enables you to combine both areas in your degree. Complete the full MBA Program and, in consultation with your advisor, choose three education courses as electives toward the MBA.
Mills students can earn an MBA with one year of additional study beyond the bachelor’s degree by taking foundation courses as part of their undergraduate program.
