Program Overview

The online MBA program at Antioch University is designed for employed professionals seeking to further their business skills, and advance their career. They can learn to thrive in a dynamic, diverse, and innovative world where business acumen, leadership ability, and practical applications are critically important; and make a positive difference in their community at the same time.

Antioch’s MBA emphasizes the mutual importance of people, planet, and profit in building and leading successful organizations and communities in the 21st century - often referred to as a “triple bottom line” approach.

Unlike generic online and place-based business programs, Antioch leverages highly engaged, responsive, and expert faculty to provide innovative, experiential, learner-centered education. Antioch empowers students with the knowledge and skills required to lead forward-thinking businesses and organizations - locally, nationally, and globally - within the context of advancing social, economic, and environmental justice.

Every course offered in Antioch University’s MBA program actively demonstrates the University’s mission and values, and emphasizes collaboration, hands-on learning, individualized attention and development, and building knowledge and techniques that are directly translatable to the student’s field of work.

Upon completion of the Master of Business Administration (MBA) program, each student will effectively demonstrate the following competencies:

  1. Demonstrate leadership, teamwork skills, and ethical decision-making in complex organizational systems inclusive of social responsibility and environmental sustainability,
  2. Develop an organizational culture that supports human, social and environmental well being,
  3. Apply systems theory in guiding organizations toward a triple bottom line paradigm, and
  4. Identify, integrate and apply knowledge of current theory and techniques of the major business disciplines.
