The MBA program has been in existence at AUB since the mid-1940s and is committed to the highest standards of quality in graduate management education. The Master of Business Administration (MBA) is a general management program that encompasses the different areas of a business and offers a robust knowledge platform comprised of a set of functional, cross-functional and skill-based core and elective courses. A variety of electives are available to choose from so students can tailor their learning experience to suit their individual needs.

All our courses will provide students with opportunities to learn, practice, and lead. Our graduates acquire the vital knowledge and skills to go on and build prosperous careers in various industries, including Management Consulting, Entrepreneurship, Banking, Marketing, Media, and others.

Program Outline

The MBA curriculum is composed of eight (8) core courses and a choice of electives from a list of courses covering important areas of interest to the students. It also includes a practicum and an MBA project. The latter can possibly be a Field Consulting Project or internship, a Case Study, or a Research Paper. The MBA project can also be replaced by two additional elective courses. The program is offered on a Full- Time and Part-Time basis suiting the needs of the students. Completion period ranges between 1 and 2.5 years depending on student preferences. It is the only graduate program at OSB which starts every Fall and Spring of the academic year.

The Pre-MBA Integrative Foundation Module

Students will need to take an exemption test in Accounting, Finance, and Statistics prior to enrollment in the program. For those who pass, the Pre-foundation module is not required. The integrative pre-MBA foundation module is an intensive, level-setting, 6 credit suite of three short courses offering basics in Accounting, Finance, and Statistics. It normally takes place over a period of one month prior to the start of each of the fall and spring semesters.
