California Lutheran University
Professionals who want an edge in the business world have a variety of programs to choose from at California Lutheran University.
The Executive MBA is an accelerated hybrid program with compressed weekend and online courses. It is designed for managers and leaders of corporate and non-profit organizations who strive to excel and transform their teams. The curriculum is organized around five key areas: Leading Operations, Managing Processes, Creating and Leading Business Strategy, Developing People/Talent, and Professional Advancement.
Cal Lutheran also offers a traditional MBA for students who require additional scheduling flexibility or have limited work experience. Evening and weekend classes are offered on-campus or online in Thousand Oaks and at the Westlake Village and Oxnard centers. Students can pursue a general MBA or specialize in finance, human capital management, international business, information technology management, marketing, or entrepreneurship.
With more than a decade of online teaching and our new full accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs, the School of Management is ready to elevate professionals in any capacity. For more information, go to calLutheran.edu/ management.
