North Central College - Naperville, IL

Master of Business Administration

We’re constantly asking Chicago-area employers what they want and need from their employees. We use their feedback to tailor our courses to real-world conditions and challenges so you can apply what you learn in class to the workplace right away. As a North Central MBA student, you’ll study with our exceptional full-time faculty while earning a degree from an institution that’s consistently ranked among the best in the Midwest. We keep our classes small, so you’ll receive plenty of individual attention from widely respected authorities who are also active researchers dedicated to staying at the top of their fields.

This program targets students wishing to expand their general business knowledge. You can complete the degree at your own pace and choose from a wide array of elective courses that will broaden your areas of expertise. You may also specialize by declaring a traditional area of focus such as change management, finance, marketing, or management. Or a unique combination of courses may be taken from several disciplines such as web and internet applications, leadership studies, or liberal studies.
