The School of Business offers a number of focused pathways that will lead to a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree. The MBA program is designed for students who want flexibility while gaining relevant knowledge and skills that can be applied immediately in the workplace. Courses are online, with a weekly online synchronous connection to fellow classmates. The School of Business prepares exceptional, Day 1 Ready graduates because of our hands-on commitment to excellence in business education. Our students enjoy a high placement rate and are employed globally, by local, regional, national and international firms.
Flexibility: Fisher offers the flexibility for students to customize their schedule to leverage available learning time. Students can study part-time or full-time to complete the program in potentially as little as one year or take up to six years if needed.
To better serve the needs of current and potential students, the Master of Business Administration program at St. John Fisher University is online with the Fisher Touch. As St. John Fisher University prides itself on meaningful, personal connection between student and instructor, our on-line MBA courses are designed to mix live, synchronous instruction in a virtual classroom with asynchronous content and assignments. All courses enjoy one, 90-minute synchronous session, each week, starting at 6 p.m. or at 7:45 p.m. This affords MBA students great flexibility while still offering regular connection to instructors and classmates.
Concentrations: The School of Business lets you select an area of concentration within your MBA. We currently offer concentrations in:
- General Management
- Health Systems Management
- Pharmaceutical Industry
* Only the accounting concentration provides preparation for CPA licensure in New York State. Students wishing to prepare for CPA licensure should check that the specific course meets the necessary requirements for their state.
Accelerated Time to Degree: The Fisher Online MBA program may be completed at your pace. Depending on your concentration, students wishing to complete the degree in a year, should plan on a 2/4/4 course load. Working students may want to consider a slower pace, taking 1 or 2 courses per semester. A discussion with your admissions representative or the MBA program director is highly recommended to help you design the most appropriate program path given course availability and your desired pace.
