At The University of Alabama, champions are all around – in the classroom and on the field.

Since 1944,  our MBA program has been producing champions of the business world.  The Manderson MBA experience is built on academic, teamwork, professional development, internship, networking and service opportunities. With quality over quantity in mind, our classes are small. This offers an experience that is both richer and more personal than larger programs. The MBA at The University of Alabama is a carefully, strategically crafted program of study that incorporates core and focus area coursework in topics such as Business Analytics, Finance, Financial Risk, Real Estate, Management Information Systems, Management & Marketing, Supply Chain & Operations Management, etc. Our faculty and staff work with our students to ensure they are prepared to build a championship-caliber career through a commitment to leading edge class topics and an experiential learning focus.
