A Marquette MBA

With the global environment of business changing at a pace unlike any other time, students demand that their business school offers curriculum that changes right along with it.

The Marquette University Graduate School of Management’s MBA Program is designed to develop ethical global leaders with a broad business, economic and social perspective – leaders who are capable of managing change in dynamic environments at every level. Our curriculum covers all functional areas of business but puts a unique emphasis on topics such as society, ethics and global business. We offer practical education with business career application in each and every class. Students learn and work in an environment that benefits both.

We offer international experiences that meet the needs of the working professional and add an entirely new dimension to the notion of global learning. This all adds up to an educational experience that takes careers to the next level and beyond.

Marquette's MBA courses are offered in three locations: Downtown, Waukesha, and Kohler. To find out more about our programs and how they will help you accomplish your career goals:
