Chaminade University MBA

“We’re a Hawaii serving institution,” says Scott Schroeder, Ph.D., Dean of Business and Professional Studies.

Business education is a huge investment and Chaminade works to ensure that it’s returned with dividends. The business program, available to undergraduate and graduate students, recently coupled its first-rate degree offerings with increased flexibility. Students can now choose to complete any or all of an MBA degree online.

The added layer of flexibility allows the Honolulu-based university to extend its reach to the neighbor islands as well as all parts of Oahu. “Those who live in Kapolei or Waianae, for example, may find evening traffic to be a bear.” says Deborah Mellom, Marketing Communications Coordinator for Graduate Services, “Now students who live farther out can tailor their learning to fit their schedules and decide how much of their education they would like to complete online.”

Unique to Chaminade’s business program offerings is a genuine focus on staying local.“We’re a Hawaii serving institution,” says Scott Schroeder, Ph.D., Dean of Business and Professional Studies. While those from the mainland may be attracted to and can enroll in online courses, the program is centered on kama`aina values. “We concentrate on Hawaii culture, our neighbor islands and our local workforce.”

The business program at Chaminade was developed to position students for competitive opportunities across a wide swath of industries, and the new flexibility adds additional appeal to attaining higher education. If that weren’t enough, dynamic instructors with diverse business backgrounds, extracurricular opportunities like the Hogan Entrepreneurial Program, and regular networking opportunities add value that students will find hard to beat.
