Description of Program
La Salle University's One-Year MBA program (OYMBA) is designed for recent graduates and those with working experience who are in various stages of their careers. La Salle’s internationally recognized program is accredited by the Association for the Advancement of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International), which less than 5 percent of business schools worldwide attain. La Salle's OYMBA students gain the professional and personal skills to be leaders in their fields.
The program offers majors in finance and accounting. Students who elect to major in accounting must have an undergraduate degree in accounting. Students without an undergraduate business background must complete the required pre-MBA Foundation courses prior to the start date of the program.
The program is ideal for students who are preparing to meet the 150-hour CPA requirement. Students majoring in finance take the managerial track or CFA track. Our CFA track is designed around developing the skill set necessary to become a Chartered Financial Analyst. The program has an international student body. International and American students may receive partial scholarships awarded on merit. Work experience is not required.
La Salle's highly innovative curriculum uses half-credit to three-credit modules to provide a flexible, dynamic program. The modules focus on both traditional topics and current emerging topics. They are updated or replaced as trends evolve, ensuring that the curriculum keeps pace with the rapidly changing business environment.
