It's Business. It's Personal.

Gonzaga University's Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) and Master of Accountancy (M.Acc.) programs are uniquely characterized by a personal learning environment, quality students from diverse backgrounds, and a faculty committed to excellence in teaching. The graduate business programs are customized to meet students' educational and career goals by offering flexible programs and individual attention. Gonzaga's curriculum is built on an ethical foundation, which means that the importance of business ethics is stressed in each discipline.

Tradition of Excellence

Gonzaga's Graduate School of Business has been producing outstanding business leaders for over 50 years. The quality reputation of the program is a valuable asset for current students and graduates. In the 2013-2014 rankings, Gonzaga's M.Acc. degree program was ranked 14th in the country by "U.S. News and World Report" (2014), its highest ranking since the program's inception. Gonzaga's M.B.A. degree programs have earned a top 100 ranking for the past 4 years, most recently ranking 73rd in the nation. Gonzaga's first-time CPA pass rate (2012) ranks 14th in the nation for first-time pass rates among the 255 "large programs" nationally that had 60+ candidates sit for the exam.

Accredited by AACSB, Gonzaga's School of Business Administration has earned a distinction bestowed on less than 25% of programs in the United States and only 5% of programs internationally. In 2009, the accounting programs also earned separate accreditation, making Gonzaga one of only 182 schools nationally to earn this distinction.

M.B.A. Degree Program

Gonzaga's programs are structured to accommodate the complex schedules of both working professionals and full-time students. Classes are offered in the early morning, afternoon, and evening. The program can be completed entirely through evening classes. Students work with an adviser to create manageable schedules that allow them to maintain a balance between their personal and professional responsibilities. They may elect to pursue the program part-time (average completion time: 2 to 3 years) or full-time (average completion time: 12-18 months).

M.B.A. degree program students may choose to earn the M.B.A. of Choice (General M.B.A.) or pursue a concentration in entrepreneurship, finance, or marketing. One third of M.B.A. coursework is offered in elective topics, allowing students the ability to tailor the program based on their own interests and goals.

Master of Accountancy (M.Acc.) Degree Program

M.Acc. students have the option of following 2 curricular tracks: "Taxation" or "Financial Accounting and Reporting." In addition, students may select courses from the M.Acc. or M.B.A. degree program curriculum to complete their elective credits. As part of the M.Acc. degree program, students can choose to participate in internships and other special courses designed to help them gain valuable real-world experience. One special elective option is the Justice for Fraud Victims Project, which permits students to work with local and state law enforcement agencies to conduct forensic accounting examinations that help law enforcement officials to prosecute white collar crimes.

Gonzaga's M.Acc. degree program has an outstanding record of helping graduates start meaningful careers. Historically, students have enjoyed a 95% placement rate within 3 to 6 months of graduation. This success stems largely from a strong on-campus recruiting program and the relationships that faculty members maintain with accounting employers.

Joint Programs with Gonzaga's School of Law

In conjunction with Gonzaga's School of Law, the Graduate School of Business offers dual degrees in business and law. Students can earn their M.B.A./J.D. or M.Acc./J.D. degrees by taking classes from both the Graduate School of Business and the School of Law. Students enrolled in both programs are able to waive a combination of 9 credits between the 2 programs. Depending on the course load, students can complete both programs in 3 to 4 years.

Specialized M.B.A. Degree Programs

Gonzaga offers an M.B.A. in Healthcare Management degree program and an M.B.A. in American Indian Entrepreneurship degree program. Gonzaga's M.B.A. in Healthcare Management degree program is a part-time, hybrid-model program. Offered half online and half in the classroom (classroom sessions are 2 weekends per month), the program is designed to accommodate the schedules of working professionals in the healthcare industry.

The M.B.A. in American Indian Entrepreneurship degree program strives to prepare leaders to effectively manage and support sustainable businesses on American Indian reservations. Since its inception, it has given over 45 alumni the skills necessary to make a positive impact on their tribes and reservations. Gonzaga is able to offer generous scholarships for applicants to this unique and transformative program.

Gonzaga is always looking for qualified candidates to join the school's tradition of excellence. The value of a Gonzaga degree is exemplified by the network of successful alumni working around the world.
