Recently redesigned to incorporate the latest research on business innovation, inclusive leadership, and data analytics, the DePaul MBA remains recognized for giving you practical experience in applying new theories and skills. Design your own concentration or choose from 15 alternatives, including new options such as Healthcare Markets & Analytics or Business Strategy & Decision-making. The DePaul MBA provides you with detailed knowledge in areas such as:

  • Negotiation strategies
  • Human resource management
  • Ethics and leadership
  • Business foundations such as accounting, finance, marketing and more

The 60-credit-hour program can be completed in two years. It includes 11 required MBA core courses and a negotiation skills course. In consultation with your advisor, you will choose four additional courses, which could count toward a concentration (see below). If you have an undergraduate business degree, you may be eligible for course waivers.

For students beginning in fall 2021, courses will be offered online with a combination/hybrid format, including a blend of asynchronous (on-demand) and synchronous (live) classes. Students will meet two evenings each week from 6-7:30 p.m.
