    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.

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.
