Earning an MBA degree paves the way for career advancement, management responsibilities, and greater earning power. Southern Utah University offers an MBA degree program that you can complete in just one year of full-time study if you have an undergraduate degree in an accredited business field. In addition, students who majored in science or engineering and took supporting business courses as undergraduates also have the opportunity to earn a five-year MBA. This means you gain a whole year of additional earning potential not available to students enrolled in the standard two-year MBA programs offered on most campuses. Known for graduating highly ethical business people, Southern Utah University’s MBA program holds AACSB accreditation, which is the highest standard of academic excellence held by only 5 percent of the world’s business schools.

The SUU MBA program offers many opportunities for you to network with successful business people and gain hands-on experience in the field through internships and local business community involvement. Throughout your graduate program you will work closely with your instructors in a small classroom environment that allows them to become valued mentors able to help you get your career off to a strong start.

The SUU Master of Business Administration program is offered on the Cedar City campus. Classes meet primarily during evening hours to accommodate our students’ work and personal schedules.
