Business Administration: MBA


The University of Delaware master of business administration (UD MBA) program is accredited by AACSB International (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business). Students may pursue either a full-time, part-time or online course of study in the UD MBA program. In some cases, UD MBA students with an undergraduate degree in business administration may waive some of the core classes and thereby complete the program with fewer than the 44 credits required of students with no prior academic background in business administration.

The MBA Conditional Admissions Program (MBA-CAP) is a joint program of the University of Delaware’s Alfred Lerner College of Business and Economics and the University’s English Language Institute. MBA-CAP provides international students whose native language is not English with an opportunity to be accepted into the UD MBA program without the need to take the TOEFL exam. Instead, students enroll in the English Language Institute before beginning their MBA coursework. This provides an opportunity for students to improve their English while developing other important skills that are necessary for success in the UD MBA program.

Current UD undergraduate students in all engineering majors, B.S. in hotel restaurant management or B.A. in music management programs can be considered for admission to the 4+1 MBA program.

Dual degrees in the following programs are available to graduate students: MBA and M.S. in accounting, MBA and M.S. in finance; MBA and M.S. in business analytics and information management, MBA and M.S. in international business, MBA and M.S. in hospitality business management, and MBA and Ph.D. in biological science. 

This program is also offered in a 100% online format. To view more information, please visit the online program website.
