If you’re wondering, “What is an MBA degree?” we have the answers. Fundamentally, an MBA, or Master of Business Administration, is a graduate degree that is intended to prepare students for higher-level positions, such as leadership roles, within the greater field of business.

MBAs typically develop not only your industry insight but also your interpersonal and leadership skills.

Yes, we offer the option to earn your MBA part time, making it a sensible solution to the challenge of balancing your education with work, family and other commitments.

The admission requirements for MBA programs will vary from one institution to another, but the most common prerequisite is that you must hold a bachelor’s degree. Here at DeVry University, applicants to our Keller Graduate School of Management must hold a bachelor’s degree from a University-recognized institution and demonstrate math and verbal skills proficiency.

An MBA degree can enable you to strengthen your resume and broaden the range of career opportunities that are available to you. This is important whether you plan to enter the job market at a higher-than-entry-level position, seek a more senior-level position in your current profession or break away to a new career path. Either way, an MBA might enable you to become a stand-out candidate for a particular job or attract the attention of recruiters and hiring managers who work with companies that are searching for quality talent.

There are many ways in which an MBA degree can be beneficial, including improving your knowledge, education and skills, helping you pursue more senior-level management positions, expanding your professional network and helping you to gain a global perspective.

A Master of Public Administration (MPA) is the public-sector equivalent to the MBA degree. This master’s degree in public affairs prepares recipients to pursue upper-level career opportunities in the public sector, such as in the federal government, in nonprofits or as public policy advocates or researchers.
