A Master of Business Administration from Nicholls State University prepares current and future professionals (with or without undergraduate business degrees) to face uncertain economic conditions, technological changes, a culturally diverse workplace, international issues, and the political/legal environment. The Program’s broad, integrated curriculum focuses on the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed by effective managers and leaders in a dynamic global environment. Courses in the graduate program are designed to keep you on the forefront of current business issues. 

The Nicholls Graduate Program in Business curriculum combines and integrates knowledge from the functional areas of business.

This well-rounded curriculum effectively addresses the quantitative and qualitative areas of business and focuses on real-world application of business concepts.

The Graduate Programs in Business faculty bring an outstanding combination of business and academic credentials to the classroom by ensuring the curriculum and classroom experiences are delivered around three principle goals. These goals are to develop you as a professional capable of: making financially-savvy decisions; engaging in superior written and oral communication; and, conducting yourself as a leader capable of making ethical decisions.
