What Sets Us Apart

Development of Soft Skills

What sets our program apart? Like most MBA programs, we cover foundational knowledge and practical application, including quantitative methods, finance, and strategy. But here’s what sets us apart: our emphasis on developing the soft skills – communication, presentation, critical thinking, decision-making, emotional and cultural intelligence, and leadership. That’s what will give you the leg up against the competition.

Flexibility

Virtually all of our students continue to work while in our program. We offer the option of either an in-person or remote format, and our program is mapped out so you can plan on all the details – including dates, costs and requirements – in advance.

Practical Application

Apply what you learned in class on Monday to a project at work on Tuesday. Our program is designed for real-world application. Class discussions and readings are balanced with projects and case studies to demonstrate how theory is applied in the real world. Your final project in the program is client based and will utilize all of your skills and knowledge to meaningfully contribute to an organization of your choice.

An Emphasis on Servant Leadership

A George Fox MBA is known for preparing competent leaders who are ethically grounded, globally engaged and socially responsive. That’s because we emphasize a business-beyond-the-bottom-line approach, incorporating courses on building ethical organizations, developing world class leaders, and personal and organizational effectiveness.

Professional Certificates

Want to specialize your degree? We offer optional professional certificates – three courses of three credits each that you take toward the end of your program. Delve into business analytics or project management and level-up your degree. More professional certificates are being added regularly.

Our Cohort Model

Looking for community? You will find it in our program, as you will progress through the entire sequence of courses with the same cohort of experienced professionals. Our cohort model encourages interdependence and social support that often continues after you graduate. An additional benefit is a strong network of professional contacts.

Individualized Attention

As a Christian university, George Fox 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. At George Fox, you'll be in a place where everyone – faculty, staff and classmates – knows your name.

Richard Bacon

MBA graduate in Strategic Management, Class of 2020

The George Fox MBA program really opened my eyes to the concept of servant leadership and my responsibility as a business leader to help my team find intrinsic fulfillment in the work that they do. Through the MBA program, I learned what it means to be a leader—it isn’t about fancy job titles; it’s about empowering my team and facilitating their success. I’m thankful for the perspective I developed through the program because it has allowed me to more effectively contribute to the success of my company, as well as better understand what drives me to succeed at work each day.
