Master of Business Administration


Our nationally accredited Charlotte MBA program has been advancing the careers of Charlotte, NC professionals since 1991.

The MBA curriculum consists of 36 credits which includes 12 three-credit courses. It is divided into two components: core courses (30 credits) and concentration courses (6 credits). Core courses cover the complete range of business disciplines and serves as the general management foundation for the program. Concentration courses provide added depth and relevance in specific areas of emphasis that connect to student career goals and professional interests.

The Wingate University MBA curriculum gives you a choice of five areas of concentration:

Data analytics

The Data Analytics concentration will focus on developing the ability to
access, mine and extract data from information databases, enterprise data warehouses,
and other sources; to analyze, interpret, and extract meaning from raw data and
leverage applicable specialized data analytics software and other tools with a focus on
real world applications; and to translate, optimize, and present data in order to drive
optimal business decisions.

Corporate innovation

The Corporate Innovation concentration focuses on entrepreneurship within a corporate setting and managing innovation and technology in order to develop competitive advantage from a corporate perspective.

General management

The General Management concentration provides students with the option of taking courses across different concentrations, providing a general management orientation. Students may choose two courses from any of the concentrations with the exception of BUS 672 (subject to the applicable prerequisites).

Health care management

The purpose of the Health Care Management concentration is to develop health care industry leaders by enhancing health care management expertise through relevant, real-world oriented health care course content, while based in a rigorous general management focused MBA curriculum.

Project management
