Ranked #19 by Fortune¹


At the Kogod School of Business's online Master of Business Administration (MBA) program, we are committed to delivering an online MBA program that is both rigorous in its curriculum and supportive of students’ unique career goals. We evaluate potential students holistically and welcome a diverse group of professionals to our online MBA community.

Scholarships are available for qualifying applicants.

We believe that test scores are not the only predictors of success. Because of this, we do not require students to submit GMAT or GRE scores to apply.

GMAT and GRE Policy

Success as a business leader is not judged by test scores—it comes from insight and a passion for finding innovative, team-based solutions to today’s business challenges. That is why MBA@American has no GMAT or GRE requirement for admission.

Course Spotlight: Business Fundamentals

To emerge as a leader in your field, you need to first have a solid understanding of core business principles. Business Fundamentals is the first course in the online MBA curriculum, where you will learn to think critically about all aspects of business and develop a strong foundation before diving further into advanced concepts in your core courses.
