Marty Reed, '00, discusses the benefits of an MBA from JFK University.

Master of Business Administration

The Master of Business Administration MBA program at JFK University integrates progressive, innovative leadership principles, systems thinking strategies, and global management practices into the traditional MBA curriculum. The curriculum also incorporates employee-centric and work-life balance principles along with sustainability concepts.

Student learning occurs through applied, work-relevant assignments and organization-based projects. The small classroom and online interactive environments are enriched by the faculty who share their professional expertise and unique experiences.

The MBA program is available online or onsite and may be completed on a part- or full-time basis.  A full-time student is able to potentially complete the program in 18-20 months.

JFK University's MBA program offers the following benefits making it distinctive from other graduate business programs.

  • Flexible Admission Requirements. We are interested in the whole person - not just the one on paper. Each applicant is considered on his or her own merits, with previous professional experience valued as a part of what the student brings to the program. We accept GMAT scores; however, they are not required.
  • Specialization Options. In addition to specializations in Leadership, Project Management,  Strategic Management, and Entrepreneurial Leadership, students can customize their own specialization to sync with their own career path or goals.
