Quality

All of our business programs are accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International), the world’s premier accrediting body for management education. AACSB accreditation assures students that the MBA program meets high quality standards in relation to faculty, curriculum, and supporting services.

The MBA program at MetroHealth Medical Center features the same curriculum and the same exceptional faculty as the MBA program at our main campus. We are proud of the 96% graduation rate among students in our corporate MBA programs.

MBA Curriculum

The MBA program consists of foundation and advanced courses. Foundation courses are prerequisites (Levels I & II) designed to introduce students to the major functions in business including accounting, economics, finance, organizational behavior, marketing, business ethics, and operations management. Advanced courses (Level III) include functional core, integrative courses, and three electives. Please note that Level I courses are not offered at the MetroHealth location.
