The format is uniquely designed so that you can attend evening or weekend classes once a week, completing one intensive course at a time.

CAU’s MBA Program provides a convenient schedule of classes that will allow you to earn your degree from a regionally accredited university without overlooking the demands of your career and busy family life.

Our curriculum is designed to transform you by expanding your ideas, knowledge, and capabilities.
