Master of Business Administration

What makes Drury's MBA different?

  • Curriculum: Drury’s MBA not only improves your technical skills in business, but also hones the soft skills needed to be an effective leader in business ventures. You will have the opportunity to put your skills to the test through case studies and projects for local and global organizations.
  • Cohort: Drury’s MBA Program capitalizes on classroom interactions and networking. Classes are taken with the same cohort of fellow students—peers who are leading organizations in a variety of industries.
  • Convenience: Students can benefit from cohort engagement in Drury’s small, interactive classes online via synchronous classes. Those students that prefer a traditional, seated classroom experience have the option to attend classes at our Springfield campus, where they will engage with both seated and synchronous members of their cohort and Drury’s outstanding faculty.

  • Comprehensive: An immersive experience helps you flex your problem solving skills by applying what you have learned in the first year to application-based projects in a global context throughout your second year in the program.

  • Capstone
    As the program progresses, students will divide into Venture Teams. These teams will plan, organize, and implement the program’s culminating experience: a weekend-long Venturing Conference that will include guest speakers, networking events, and Venture Team case presentations.

Drury's MBAV program provides an understanding of the self and others, knowledge of how to use data and information, expanded global insights, a solid understanding of funding and sustaining performance, and a conference.

MBA Student Profile: Dr. Laura Waters

Mercy Health pediatrician Dr. Laura Waters wanted to learn more about the business side of patient care. So she did what any smart physician or healthcare professional would do and went back to school, this time for her MBA. But she didn’t choose just any MBA program. She chose Drury University’s because she knew she would get the small class sizes and individual attention she desired.
