Master of Business Administration

Master of Business Administration

Franklin Pierce University M.B.A. graduates are expected to become leaders within their organizations. These prospective leaders are educated to look at situations from a systems wide perspective, addressing human, organizational, and community issues. The Master of Business Administration degree program requires students to develop a Leadership Portfolio. The portfolio enables students to articulate leadership strategies.


The portfolio begins with a “foundation paper,” using an organizational strategic management process to guide students in their progress through the program. Each course requires a module paper to be added to the portfolio, allowing students to track their progress and reflect on their learning, continuously linking learning to their strategic plan. Normal time to completion is 21 months.
