Why ODU for an MBA Online?

Old Dominion's MBA online program is an accelerated master's degree program. Course sessions last eight weeks, and you'll learn everything that you would in a standard semester. This means you could earn your MBA online from ODU faster than in a typical program.

Enhance your business administration degree! Add a concentration or graduate certificate to round out your professional qualifications. Options include:

  • Business analytics
  • Maritime and ports management
  • Project management
  • Public procurement and contract management
  • Supply chain management

ODU's Strome College of Business is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) and is one of fewer than 200 business schools with dual AACSB Business and Accounting accreditation.

Are you a current ODU undergraduate interested in earning an MBA? Qualified students can earn credits toward their master's while completing a bachelor’s degree with our Early Entry program.

Required Courses

Our curriculum is broken down into five areas:
