Fast-Track MBA

Are you looking to earn your MBA as soon as possible?

Our Fast-Track options allow hard-working, highly motivated students to personalize a schedule to complete the MBA requirements in less than the standard 20 months. While individual student plans will differ, the two standard options are:

  • 11-month plan — Take two courses at a time from start to finish.
  • 15-month plan — Take the three concentration courses while taking the core courses.

Students can choose from five concentrations: Finance, Human Resource Management, Ministry Leadership*, Human and Social Services, or Organizational Management. The MBA Health Care Administration program can also be completed on this schedule.

Plus, this program is offered entirely online for maximum convenience and flexibility!

*Fast-track option for Ministry Leadership concentration is dependent on current course schedule and student availability.

Admission Requirements

Although we try to keep our admissions process as straightforward as possible, our knowledgeable staff is always available and happy to help you. Once you have completed and submitted your application materials, the Graduate Business Admissions Committee will determine your acceptance status.

Admission requirements include:

  • Baccalaureate degree from a regionally-accredited institution with a GPA of at least 2.8 (on a 4.0 scale).
    • Students with an undergraduate cumulative GPA below 2.8 may be accepted on academic probation.

Applicants from countries and U.S. territories in which English is not the primary language must also provide recent evidence of proficiency in English by scoring 70 or above on the Internet-based TOEFL with subscores in writing, reading, speaking, and listening of at least 20; or scoring 525 or above on the written TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) with subscores in both writing and reading of at least 50. All tests of English proficiency must have been taken in the last 2 years to be considered for acceptance.

Transfer Credits

Students may transfer up to 6 semester hours of graduate business course work, provided that the courses were earned from a regionally accredited institution, a grade of B or higher was earned, and they are applicable to MVNU's program. Transfer credit is evaluated on a course-by-course basis and must be approved by the program coordinator for the student's intended graduate business degree.
