SIUE Fall 2022 MBA graduates

Southern Illinois University Edwardsville School of Business’ master of business administration (MBA) program has been named the fourth largest MBA program in the St. Louis area by the St. Louis Business Journal. “The growth of our program is a testament to the top-quality learning experience our MBA provides our students,” said Janice Joplin, Ph.D., associate dean for academic affairs and director of the MBA program.

SIUE’s fully online accelerated program is the fastest-growing MBA program. The flexible program meets individuals’ career goals in numerous fields, serving students from coast to coast.

“The SIUE MBA program provides a flexible educational path, serving students from a variety of industries and geographic locations,” Joplin added. “Our graduates demonstrate interpersonal skills and specialized knowledge in various areas creating the ability to move on to higher levels of responsibility within their careers.”

SIUE offers MBA specializations in business analytics, healthcare administration, management, management information systems and project management.

The SIUE School of Business earned an extension of accreditation by AACSB International (AACSB) earlier this year. The AACSB accreditation has been earned by only five percent of the world’s business schools, representing the highest standard of excellence in business education.

“The AACSB accreditation provides quality assurance with regard to faculty qualifications and assurance of student learning,” Joplin noted.
