Arcadia University Launches MBA Program Online

Redesigned program to launch spring 2024

The Arcadia University School of Global Business is excited to announce the launch of its redesigned MBA program in a fully digital format. The program will begin in January 2024. 

The online MBA program at Arcadia University will consist of a business core, with students selecting a specialization in one of three concentrations of Healthcare Finance, Financial Analysis, or Organizational Leadership. A fully asynchronous mode of delivery allows students the flexibility to pursue each course at their own pace during the week. Information regarding tuition remission for Arcadia employees will be coming in a separate announcement. 

The Arcadia MBA is designed to develop ethical business leaders who  apply critical and creative thinking to solve business problems in a sustainable manner. Students will graduate with a set of skills that will help them assume leadership positions and be able to perform their business duties with an emphasis on making ethical decisions in a world that is ever changing, globally interconnected, and diverse.

“The Landscape of the MBA program has significantly changed; employers no longer see a generalist MBA to be a value addition to their employees,” said Raghu Kurthakoti, PhD, MBA, chair of the School of Global Business at Arcadia University. “Through the Arcadia online MBA, students will take one course at a time, in an accelerated, eight-week course period, a model that we have found that working professionals particularly value.”

Learning outcomes of the Arcadia online MBA program have been developed to align closely with employer expectations (skills related to leadership, critical thinking, communication, and decision-making). Students completing the online MBA program can find employment in various managerial roles that project growth rates through 2030, including within business development, project management, or analysis. 

The School of Global Business (SGB) at Arcadia is accredited by ACBSP. For more information on the Arcadia University online MBA program, or to learn how to apply, visit
