Master of Business Administration

Program Details

Online MBA programs may seem like a dime a dozen. That’s simply not the case at University of Jamestown Accelerated. We talked to employers across business segments, and we asked them – what do you want to see from an employee with a master’s degree in business administration? What makes them stand out? One answer kept coming up: specialized skills.

We created a program to fill that need. Now, we’re one of the only online universities to offer specialized micro-credentials, which focus on the mastery of a specific skill set in an industry—all built within an affordable online MBA program.

No GMAT, GRE required. We accept ALL bachelor’s degrees (business and non-business related) from a regionally accredited institution to enter the program.

What’s it like to be an online MBA student at UJ?

Our online master’s in business is available 24/7. With no set class times, you can navigate around existing work and family commitments, making the program convenient and easier to complete.

Here’s how it works:

  • All coursework is posted at the beginning of the semester.
  • Log in to your classroom and learn on your schedule.
  • Complete coursework at a pace that works for you. Have a family vacation coming up? Work one week ahead so you can truly enjoy your time off! · Get academic support every step of the way.
  • Complete your business degree on your terms. Most students finish in 12-18 months!

Whether you’re looking for a 1 year MBA program or a part-time online MBA program, we can help you reach your professional goals.

Personalize Your Degree

Micro-credentials allow you to tailor your learning and align your business degree with your professional goals. These focused online MBA courses give you the specific skills and knowledge you need to excel in your chosen field. Plus, they make your resume stand out from the crowd.

Students will select two of the following eight micro-credentials as part of their coursework.

Not ready to dive all-in? You have the option to earn micro-credentials only, which still count as graduate-level credit. That way, if you wish to complete the full, accredited MBA program later in life, you can do so at an accelerated pace.
