11-month intensive programSaving you time and money, this program is specifically designed for the recent graduate. With the same credit hours as our part-time MBA, classes are held from August to June with a short break over the winter holidays. Study full time in order to enter the workforce with an MBA degree as soon as possible.
Value-informed leadersThere is more to business than the bottom line. Our primary task is preparing managers and leaders with deeply ethical worldviews who will perform at increasingly responsible levels in their organizations. While we cover the core topics of a master of business administration program, including quantitative methods, finance, and accounting, we major in values-informed development, practice and leadership.
Real-world experienceThe value of an education lies in knowing how to apply it to real-world situations. On Fridays we visit nonprofit and for-profit corporations in the greater Portland area for professional industry presentations, organizational tours and hands-on projects that focus on learning application. A variety of projects are implemented throughout the program to immediately impact local business process.
Internationally Blended Cohort
The one-year MBA is comprised of students from all over the world and from all across the United States. This international cohort provides students with a unique opportunity to collaborate with classmates from many cultures. Some of the cities that our current students and alumni hail from include Homs (Libya); New Taipai; Beijing, Yueuang City and Dalian City (China); Ulaanbaatar (Mongolia); Nairobi (Kenya); and Langley (British Columbia).
International Residency Option
Professionals today need to understand how globalization is affecting their organizations. We teach our students to take a global perspective into their workplace. Students in MBA programs at George Fox can get a firsthand look at transnational corporations at work by participating in a weeklong international study trip.
Emphasis on the human dimension of business
Effective leaders understand people and communicate effectively. We provide training to allow students to develop their "people skills" alongside their analytical skills. Strong emphasis is put on presenting material effectively in a fast–paced work environment.
Progress through the entire sequence of courses with the same classmates. Our cohort model encourages interdependence and social support that often continues after the program is completed. An additional benefit is a strong professional network of contacts.
Respect for the individual student
As a Christian university, the George Fox Graduate School of Business seeks to develop the whole person – academically, socially and spiritually. We limit our class sizes to ensure our experienced faculty give personal attention to each student.
