AACSB-International Accreditation

You will be enrolled in not one, but two of the finest business schools in the region. Towson University and the University of Baltimore are both accredited by AACSB-International (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business), the premier accrediting organization for degree-granting business administration and accounting programs. It is the “Gold Standard” for business education; less than one third of all U.S. business schools can claim this distinction.

Convenience and Mobility

We provide a flexible way for students to obtain an MBA while managing the realities of work, home and other commitments. You will have the flexibility to take your courses at both of our two campuses and online:

  • UB's midtown campus, located in the heart of Baltimore's historic Mt. Vernon cultural district, is located just off I-83, and is a short walk from Baltimore's Penn train station.
  • Towson's campus, located in suburban Towson, is easily accessible from both I-83 and the Baltimore Beltway (I-695).
  • Online classes offer the ultimate in convenience and mobility. Take some of your classes online and some in the classroom.
