What to Know About Business Schools and Programs

A successful business career starts with a degree from a college, university, or professional business school. Choose among these business degree programs:

  • Associate in Business Administration. The associate's degree features a career-ready curriculum designed to prepare you for the workplace in about two years. You'll cover basic business administration skills, from bookkeeping to financial planning.

  • Master of Business Administration (MBA). The MBA is the gold standard in business career credentials. This two-year graduate-level degree allows you to deepen your expertise in a specific business field. Master's-level business programs may focus on retail management, hospitality management, e-commerce, real estate, or other business specialties. Online grad schools make business degrees widely available for working professionals who want to build their credentials without putting their business careers on hold.
