Master of Business Administration (MBA)

When you're ready to take the next step in your career, consider an MBA program that combines quality, convenience, and flexibility into an affordable package that's tailored to you.



A strong core and numerous elective options create a widely relevant yet uniquely tailored experience. All MBA courses are taught one night a week for eight weeks at Barry Hall in Downtown Fargo. Attend class just once or twice a week to finish in as few as four to five semesters.

Specialize in areas such as:

  • Business Analytics

  • Digital Marketing & Innovation

  • Leadership & Managerial Skills

  • Investments & Applied Portfolio Management

Each of these concentrations has also been developed as a stand-alone graduate certificate (Investments & Applied Portfolio Management pending final approval). Each graduate certificate consists of four classes held either one night a week on campus–or online–for eight weeks each (two back-to-back eight week courses in the fall, and two back-to-back eight week courses in the spring).
