PLNU MBA '14 | Evening MBA

In PLNU’s MBA program, I was able to learn from professors that were not only brilliant, but they wove ethics into every discussion--great preparation for business today, as corporate responsibility is an increasingly important issue. My goal is to work as a business strategy consultant to facilitate conversations that consider this key ethical dimension of success. My PLNU teachers helped me realize that it’s not so much about getting the correct answer: what matters is the kind of person you are in the process of solving problems.


Why PLNU? No matter which PLNU program you decide is right for you, you'll discover the hallmark PLNU experience is designed to give every student the clear framework and professional tools to stand out in his or her field.

Established in 1902 and located in beautiful San Diego, our small class sizes, focused faculty attention, and convenient online offerings are just a few of the powerful ways PLNU delivers real value to every student.
