“When I weighed the specifics of the program—the benefits of a cohort program with a streamlined enrollment process and an attractive cost relative to a traditional program—it was an easy decision to enroll.”
--Anthony, MBA 

DePaul Community College Partner MBA Cohort

In gratitude for the many years of trust and partnership between community colleges and DePaul, the university is offering a 40% tuition discount on an MBA degree tailored to the field of higher education and available only to community college employees. This program begins in September 2021. 

Two new courses are being developed specifically for this MBA cohort: Strategic Enrollment Management and Analytics in Higher Education. In addition, many of the 11 core MBA courses will be customized to higher education. You may pursue your area of interest further by selecting three elective courses that can lead to one of eight concentrations. Eight half-day residencies on higher education topics complete this program. 

The DePaul MBA provides practical knowledge with a focus on leadership. You will learn how to put theory into practice and gain new ideas and skills that you can apply immediately.

You will develop detailed knowledge about:

  • Negotiation strategies
  • Leadership in your organization
  • Ethics and leadership
  • Creativity and innovation in business

Fall 2021 classes will be delivered online with a blend of synchronous (real-time) and asynchronous (on-demand) course delivery. You may choose to transition to instruction at DePaul's Loop Campus when conditions allow. Students unable to attend classes on-site at DePaul may participate remotely for the remainder of the degree. You will be able to complete the 60-credit-hour degree in two years (eight academic quarters).
