About Our Program

 Our MBA program has been designed for you—your career, your development, and your busy life.

Our embedded emphasis on analytics, innovation, digital marketing, and ethics — skills that are highly sought by today’s employers — complement the more traditional business areas also taught in the MBA program. The key features that set us apart from other programs are centered in four areas: An innovative Market-Driven Curriculum, Ultimate Flexibility, our Professional and Respected Reputation, and the Expanding Opportunities for personal and professional development both in and out of the classroom that our program offers.

Market Driven Curriculum

Our MBA program includes a core curriculum on trend with what employers are looking for in MBA graduates, with an embedded emphasis on analytics, innovation, digital marketing, communication, and ethics. These skills are highly sought after within the business world and complement the more traditional business topics also taught in our program.

Through a collaboration with the Small Business and Technology Development Center (SBTDC) in Raleigh, as part of the MBA 790 seminar course, students serve as consultants to local businesses, providing them the opportunity to experience the challenges faced by business professionals. Similar real-world experiences can be found in other courses throughout the program.

With specialized elective focus areas available in Accounting, Financial Services, Healthcare Management, Management & Leadership, Marketing, or the Traditional MBA – our program allows you to focus your curriculum in the industry-specific area that interests you most.

Ultimate Flexibility

Almost 70% of alumni choose “Flexibility of the Program” as their top reason for choosing Campbell over other programs in the area.

We offer classes in Downtown Raleigh, online, and on the main campus in Buies Creek. Prior to each term you may choose the campus location that works best for your busy schedule—you are never locked into one location.

With courses that meet only one night per week for eight weeks, your path to an MBA is more convenient than ever. We offer multiple start dates throughout the year — August, October, January, March, April/May, and June — along with rolling admissions, making it easy to get started as soon as you are ready.

Students have the option to complete the MBA curriculum at their own pace. Earn your MBA in as little as one year by taking two courses each term, or work through the program more slowly to meet the demands of your schedule. Need a break? That’s ok. Take a term off and return when you are ready, without having to reapply.

Our Attend from Anywhere pilot program will launch in two courses in Spring 2021 and will roll out to other courses throughout the year.

Through this format, choose from week to week how to attend classes – either live in-person (meaning you are physically in the classroom) or remote live (meaning you are live-streaming into the class from a virtual feed, listening to the lecture and collaborating with your classmates remotely). This format allows you the networking and collaborating benefits of an in-person program, but the flexibility of an online program, all in one.

Professional and Respected

With a Campbell MBA, you’ll receive a quality education from a well-known, respected institution.

The Wall Street Journal ranks Campbell University No. 7 overall & No. 5 among private universities in North Carolina.

Expanding Opportunities and Benefits

At Campbell, we believe an MBA program should provide more than just a classroom experience. As such, we have developed numerous opportunities, both in and out of the classroom, to provide you with options for personal and professional development.

With most classes having 15 to 25 students, you will have the opportunity to get to know your classmates and your professors, helping you build your professional network. A survey of Campbell MBA alumni indicated that “faculty accessibility” and “individual attention” were among the most important factors that set Campbell Business School apart from other programs.

At Campbell, you’ll earn an MBA, and have the opportunity to earn various other resume building credentials, setting yourself apart and enhancing the overall value of your MBA.

Truist Emerging Leaders Certification
In MBA 700, not only do you get an orientation to the program and an introduction to the Campbell culture, but upon completion of this course you will also earn the Truist Emerging Leaders Certification. Administered on behalf of the Truist Leadership Institute, this is a certification program for students that focuses on self-awareness and learning to lead others more effectively.

Certified Management Accountant Certification Preparation
Our MBA 710 Accounting for Decision Making course, part of the core curriculum, has been designed to prepare students for Part I of the Certified Management Accountant (CMA) certification exam. Therefore, just by taking this required course you are learning the information that you will need to be prepared to pursue a nationally recognized, resume building, certification.

In addition, if you choose to continue with the Accounting focus area for your elective curriculum, you then gain the training you need to prepare for Part II of that exam.

Certified Global Business Professional Certification
If you have an interest in global business, we encourage you to take our Certified Global Business Professional course. Here, you’ll be introduced to the global environment, while also preparing for the Certified Global Business Professional Certification exam. Administered through the North American Small Business International Trade Educators association (NASBITE), this certification is a nationally recognized credential, that will set you apart.

Executive Certificate of the Study of Negotiation and/or Advanced Certificate of the Study of Transnational Law and Negotiation

Through a collaboration with the University of Reading in Reading, England, current Campbell University students can earn widely recognized international credentials through courses taken exclusively at Campbell’s Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law, and in conjunction with the Lundy-Fetterman School of Business.

It is a global economy, and what better way to get in touch with it than to see it for yourself? As part of the Campbell MBA program, graduate students have the option to receive course credit by participating in 10-day faculty-led study abroad courses.  In recent years our students have traveled to Italy, Chile, England, South Korea, Spain, and Portugal.

Our Career Services Office supports Business School students and alumni specifically, allowing for customized and valuable assistance, including access to job databases through our CUHired Portal, career counseling, resume development assistance, and interview preparation.

Raleigh Founded is a co-working entrepreneurial workspace and accelerator located in downtown Raleigh.  The Campbell University School of Business maintains a suite within this workspace as part of our outreach efforts to engage the Raleigh business community and its entrepreneurial network and, as such, we have considerable collaboration with Raleigh Founded through its workshops and its start-ups tenants.

Interactions with classmates and alumni are one of the most beneficial qualities of an MBA program, so we strive to offer our students opportunities to do just that. Gatherings are held at a variety of venues, including Campbell sporting events, local events and venues in the Raleigh area, and professional events organized by the Business School.

Campbell MBA students have access to all of the on-campus facilities and perks that Campbell has to offer, no matter at which campus you are taking courses, including the First Citizens Wealth Management Center, Wiggins Memorial Library, and Oscar N. Harris Student Union.
