I want to learn more about Gannon University's Online MBA program.
Gannon University is a student-oriented teaching university. This philosophy guides our approach to curriculum design, teaching, and advising. We recognize and understand the dramatic changes ongoing in the world of business. The mission of the Gannon
Online MBA Program is to provide students with the vision, values, and skills required to lead successful professional and rewarding personal lives within this exciting new world. Our approach is to pay careful attention to each student, challenge
them to grow, and help them to reach their own personal and career objectives. Courses in the Online Master of Business Administration (MBA) program are rigorous and challenging by design, but the faculty is prepared to work with each student to
build the skills needed for the business world of the 21st century.
Gannon University's MBA program was founded in 1970 and our experience as the region's first and largest graduate school of business has taught us some important lessons. Simply having a master's degree, regardless of the type of degree or apparent status
of the degree-granting institution, is no assurance of success. To succeed in business, individuals need real skills, an understanding of the world of business and an appreciation for life. Our network of over 1,400 MBA alumni is a proud testament
to Gannon's ability to make success happen for its graduate students. Gannon MBA Alumni include Presidents/CEO's, Vice Presidents, CFO's, Treasurers, and Managing Partners. In addition, over 60 have earned advanced degrees, including doctorates from
some of the most prestigious academic institutions in North America (Indiana University, University of Michigan and University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School, Stanford University to name a few). More than 45 Gannon MBA's are currently teaching
in colleges and universities.
It’s time you experience the possibilities that come with a Gannon MBA.
The purpose of the Gannon University Online Master of Business Administration Program is to develop leaders with a sound understanding of the role of business in society. Globally accredited by ACBSP (Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs),
our program centers on honing ethical decision making and problem solving skills, via content with an applied, practical application, in the functional areas of business. Our dedicated faculty and seasoned practitioners offer a dynamic and diverse
learning experience for students, whereby our graduates are equipped with transferable skills that are easily adapted to different areas of business, government, and industry, both domestically and globally.

Courtney Brumagin Masters of Business Administration
"I chose Distance Education at Gannon University because: It was the most convenient way for me to still attend Gannon through the height of the pandemic and further my education. The professors and other classmates were extremely helpful during the last part of my undergraduate with that being remote and they were during my graduate classes as well. I enjoyed my time at Gannon and the professors that helped along the way. I do live in Erie and work a full-time job and I was able to juggle school life, work, and my social life all while finishing my degree using Distance Education thanks to Gannon."
