An Online MBA program that moves at the speed of business.
At Chico State we expect our MBA students to step immediately into their desired roles post-graduation, equipped with the training and credentials they need to succeed.
We offer not only a well-rounded general MBA path, but also two specializations in Health Services Administration and Project Management to help you meet your specific goals. These specializations help prepare our online students to land in-demand roles in today’s leading organizations and to take certification exams to boost their qualifications in their desired field.
We also understand that the working professionals who enroll in our Online MBA program don’t want to wait more than a year before they see results in the workplace. That’s why we’ve developed our innovative FAST (Focused. Applied. Strategic Training) electives to make an impact in your career in a matter of weeks.
Each FAST elective is worth 1.5 units of credit; trains you in immediately applicable skills and tools like Excel, CRM/Salesforce, Everyday Project Management: Knowledge and Skills, and persuasive writing; and can be completed in just three weeks.
FAST electives are only available to students enrolled in the general MBA path.
