There are three sessions per semester allowing you to move through your MBA at a full-time pace finishing all 36 credits in only 16 months. These 5 week sessions also allow you to make the semester work for you. You can choose to take one session off without losing the entire semester.

Content Revived.

The core content of The Corban MBA will empower you to live your career as ministry. Economics, management, information technology, marketing, and global business are a few of the topics that you will explore with current, relevant instruction from faculty who are passionate about training business leaders who will make a difference for Jesus Christ.
