Are you an artist looking to run your own gallery? Or a chemist with dreams of managing a pharmaceutical company? Whether in the sciences or the arts, the ability to manage people and finances will be a competitive advantage.

Why should students start looking into Longwood’s MBA program while in undergrad? 

The MBA 4+1 program is a great opportunity for our current Longwood students. They can finish their Master’s degree in 12 or less months after graduating with their undergraduate degree. The entire program is online so they have the flexibility of relocating after graduation if they choose. It doesn’t matter which major students are in, an MBA is designed to prepare you for making managerial decisions and leading people.
