Adelphi University's Internationally Accredited Robert B. Willumstad School of Business Offers General and Specialty MBA programs

Adelphi University's internationally recognized Robert B. Willumstad School of Business offers a general MBA and eight specialized MBA degrees in accounting, finance, health services administration, human resource management, management, management information systems, marketing, and sport management.

Adelphi's Willumstad School of Business is one of an elite group of less than 10 percent of the world's business schools that has earned international accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). For prospective MBA students, faculty, and the international business community, the historic AACSB International accreditation is the gold standard of performance that assures quality and promotes excellence in undergraduate and graduate education for business administration and accounting.

The Willumstad School of Business is situated in the New York metropolitan area on Adelphi's beautifully landscaped campus in Garden City, Long Island, New York. A nearby Long Island Rail Road train station connects Adelphi students with the world-class attractions of New York City in just 45 minutes.

Established in 1964, Adelphi's Robert B. Willumstad School of Business combines a cutting-edge curriculum with personal attention from expert faculty in small class settings. Through case-based study and hands-on experience, the MBA programs prepare students to make informed decisions, find innovative solutions, and manage with integrity and ethics.

Experienced, First-Rate Faculty

MBA students benefit from a faculty of top scholars, executives, and experienced entrepreneurs who share a passion for teaching. Many faculty members are award-winning researchers. MBA course and class work are enhanced with graduate internships that give students invaluable exposure to real-life business situations while earning academic credit. The Executives-in-Residence program brings together MBA students with business leaders, distinguished executives, government leaders, and scholars during their graduate studies.

Students have the opportunity to be graduate research assistants or participate in original research and consulting projects with faculty in a wide range of business areas, such as finance, economics, taxation, management information systems, and global issues.

Preparing Managers to Lead in a Global Business Environment

Adelphi University's distinguished MBA serves middle-level professionals and others who want to advance their management careers. The growing complexities of a global environment require managers to be effective communicators, intellectually well-rounded, and able to understand and appreciate the impact of their decisions on society and the role that society plays in forming their decisions. They must understand the legal, environmental, technological, and social issues that can affect an organization's operations.

MBA Programs in Eight Specializations

The well-rounded MBA curriculum integrates contemporary management issues and business fundamentals that give students the depth and breadth of necessary knowledge and competencies.

Students can specialize in one of eight traditional areas of management or pursue a general approach by spreading their advanced elective course of study over several functional areas. Specialty MBAs are available in accounting, finance, health services administration, human resource management, management, management information systems, marketing, and sport management.

Accelerated MBA Program

Applicants with a minimum of four years managerial experience may apply to the GOAL (Graduate Opportunity for Accelerated Learning) MBA program. The fast-track format of the accelerated MBA allows busy managers to obtain their graduate degree in 17 months by taking Saturday classes. The 42-credit program provides a balanced, diverse, and global orientation to business education and emphasizes leadership, team building, analysis, and problem solving.

Unique Dual Degree Programs

Effective human resource management can enhance organizational performance across industries and professions. With its Advanced Certificate in Human Resource Management (ACHR), Adelphi's Robert B. Willumstad School of Business offers two joint programs-the M.S.W./ACHR program with Adelphi's School of Social Work and the M.A. in Psychology/ACHR program with Adelphi's Gordon F. Derner Institute of Advanced Psychological Studies-to prepare these professionals to take on increased responsibilities in the area of management of their employee force. Students in these programs take a few additional credits in human resource management, as is applicable, to acquire the Advanced Certificate in Human Resource Management.
