Richard J. Bolte, Sr. School of Business
The Bolte School of Business offers a Master of Business Administration (MBA) and a Master of Health Administration (MHA). The Bolte School also offers graduate certificate programs in Project Management, Organizational Development, and Logistics and Supply Chain Management. Students may earn these certificates separately or they may apply them to the degree requirements of the MBA.
The importance of the MBA and MHA degrees cannot be understated. For most organizations, these degrees are the entry qualification to higher management. The Bolte School's world-class faculty encourages students to think broadly about business decisions as they relate to the multiple moving parts of a business or health organization.
MBA and MHA classes are discussion based, and students are expected to come prepared to talk about the readings and case studies they are working on. Engaging the material and participating in the class discussions are the keys to success in these programs. Our professors are dedicated to putting students in real-world scenarios to prepare them for the challenges that will come with the greater responsibilities of higher management.
MBA classes are held at our campuses in Frederick and Emmitsburg, and students may enter the program at any time. MHA classes are only offered in Frederick, and new MHA cohorts begin in January and August. All graduate classes meet once a week in the evening or on weekends in a continuous cycle of eight-week courses, rather than the standard 16-week semester. Contact the Richard J. Bolte, Sr. School of Business for more information on any of our graduate programs.
