A Traditional View of Business Education

The School of Business at Henderson offers small classes, great professors, and a team environment that has stood the test of time. Our professors are experts in their fields and bring advanced degrees from some of the best business schools in the country. In addition, they bring vast experience in both the corporate and small business worlds. This creates the best possible graduate business experience.

The Hybrid Concept

In the online option, a student will typically take two courses per term. Each course will have a self-paced online component and two Saturday classroom sessions. The Saturday session can be done in class or online using video conferencing technology. This provides maximum flexibility without sacrificing quality.

The MBA Bootcamp

We want to ensure that you are ready for the rigors of graduate business education and that requires some preparation in the fundamental concepts of business, including accounting, finance, analytics, management, and marketing.

The Bootcamp is a combination of a self-paced online study that includes case workshops, lectures, and assignments.

At the end of the Bootcamp you are given the Course Readiness Exam that evaluates your preparation for the eight core courses in the MBA. You will be allowed to continue in the program, but you may be given advising on continued preparation in certain areas.

We believe this method will give you the tools that you need to succeed in the MBA at your own pace.
