All application materials due by May 31st.


Classes are held Monday through Thursday from 7:00-10:00 p.m., and occasional Saturdays. Students typically take two courses per semester and complete MBA coursework in about 2 years. Courses are offered in a variety of modalities, providing the utmost flexibility for students. Students reduce or accelerate their academic load commensurate with career and family demands. Elective offerings focus on providing timely and relevant topics that help differentiate a student in their workplace and add career value.


Nazarian College MBA students not only learn, but also pay that knowledge forward by helping organizations as part of the culminating experience in the Nazarian College Small Business Consulting Program. Through continued support from the Wells Fargo Foundation, MBA student teams work with faculty advisors to consult with and address specific needs of small businesses and non-profits in the region. As a result, students gain confidence and improve their networks, paying their investment forward to the community. Successful consulting projects require collaboration between clients, students, and faculty – all working together to address the problems small businesses face. Exemplifying this for two years in a row, Nazarian MBA consulting teams earned first place in the 2022 Small Business Institute’s “Project of the Year” award. Winning first place in the graduate specialized and feasibility project categories exemplifies the quality of Nazarian MBA teamwork.
