The Manderson MBA Advantage

Since 1944, our full-time, campus-based MBA program at the University of Alabama has produced champions of the business world. The Manderson MBA program is strategically crafted to bridge the gap between pre-professional students and leaders in the workforce through experiential learning, professional development, networking, and service opportunities. As a result, our program has been recognized as one of the country’s best by publications like U.S. News & World Report, which ranked the Manderson MBA among the top for several years.

Our faculty and staff are committed to helping students prepare to become business leaders who are ready to solve the business challenges they face in the global marketplace. Students in our program have the opportunity to bring their educational experiences to new heights through national case competitions, fantastic career development workshops, and engaging with faculty that teach based on real-world applications.
