About the Masters of Business Administration 

Our MBA program is accredited by the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE).

We offer two MBA formats, the on-campus format (available at both the Campbellsville campus and the Louisville Education Center) where classes meet in the evenings on Tuesdays and/or Thursdays and the online MBA format where all degree requirements can be met entirely online. We have two cohorts per year:  January and July.

We are excited to announce seven tracks to the MBA online degree.  The tracks include:

  • Accounting,
  • Marketing,
  • Information Technology,
  • International Business,
  • Human Resource Management,
  • Church Management,
  • Healthcare Management.

These tracks will be available based on demand and only in the online format.

The School of Business and Economics has an excellent group of full-time and adjunct professional faculty members with diverse backgrounds.  Ms. Jennifer Graham serves as adviser to the on-campus MBA students and works with graduate business admissions. Our Enrollment Counselor serves as adviser to the online MBA students.

Foundational Requirements

All applicants who have not completed undergraduate courses in any one or all of the following areas:

Accounting, Finance, Economics, and/or Statistics, are to take undergraduate courses in these areas as prerequisites or take subject MBA/PMBA Primer pretests BEFORE admission to the program. The MBA/PMBA Primer pretests are free of charge and may be taken only one time. If students do not score 70% or higher on the pretests, they must complete the corresponding preparatory modules. After completion of the modules, students must score 70% or higher on the post-tests to satisfy the prerequisite requirements.

The MBA/PMBA Primer includes individual courses and a comprehensive course which includes all of the courses combined. Students may take as much time as necessary to be successful in the MBA/PMBA Primer courses. Expect to spend between 20 and 30 hours total on the four modules and post-tests. Individual study time will vary. The entire course is web based. There is no textbook involved. The pretest or post-test scores will not appear on a student’s transcript at Campbellsville University. Students will not be admitted to the program until all prerequisite requirements have been met.

Corporate Sponsorship

Campbellsville University will work with corporations that wish to reimburse employees for tuition and fees incurred during coursework toward the MBA degree. Payment may be deferred, and VISA and MasterCard are accepted.
