Global Leadership University offers an innovative MBA characterized by these distinctives:

Integrated Priorities

We believe that business can and should focus on more than just maximizing profits for a few at the expense of the rest.

We believe business should pursue 4 integrated priorities – striving to be 1) financially viable, 2) socially beneficial and compassionate, 3) spiritually open and respectful, and 4) environmentally responsible.

We refer to this as the "integrated quadruple bottom line."

Multicultural Perspective

We equip our graduates to succeed in a globally connected and complex world with many cultures and belief systems.

Practical Application

We go beyond essential frameworks and concepts to develop practical skills and apply them in relevant business experiences.

25% of our MBA is set aside for a hands-on business experience called a "Practicum" where students apply the concepts and skills they learned in the first 75% of the MBA.

To learn more, read about "Interesting Readings and Assignments," "Practical Demonstration of Business Skills," and "Business Practicum" on the Innovative Approach page.

Spiritual Integration

We bring a spiritual perspective to every aspect of business.

We believe the Bible has relevant and useful guidance for doing morally praiseworthy business, even for those who may not believe everything in it.

Affordability

We want our MBA to be affordable so that current and future leaders from around the world can afford it without going into debt.

As an institution focused exclusively on a distance-learning MBA, we don’t have expensive campuses and buildings to maintain, and we pass the cost savings on to our students.

We even offer discounts to immediate and extended family members!

Learn more about our costs on the Pricing page.

Achievability

We want our MBA to be achievable by ordinary people who lead busy lives.

We provide part-time online education so students don’t have to stop their lives in order to obtain a graduate degree.

Our annual course schedule is less compressed than most online degrees, because we recognize that busy people need the space to juggle multiple priorities in life.

Global Leadership University is committed to an integrated approach to business, in which business is a force for good in a needy world, pursues integrated priorities, and is morally praiseworthy according to Biblical guidance.

We believe business should be a force for good in a needy world.

Our world struggles to achieve the 17 worthy goals expressed in the UN Sustainable Development Goals, which include overcoming poverty, hunger, sickness, injustice, lack of education and opportunity, and environmental deterioration.

Business can and should make a meaningful contribution toward achieving these goals.

Business should not be indifferent or uncaring, nor should it be actively doing harm.

We need to restore business itself as a force for good in a world that needs help, and we need to equip business leaders to do good in and through business.

We believe business should pursue 4 integrated priorities – striving to be 1) financially viable, 2) socially beneficial and compassionate, 3) spiritually open and respectful, and 4) environmentally responsible. We refer to this as the integrated quadruple bottom line.

1) Business should be financially viable.

Business should pursue reasonable profitability. Business should not expect to lose money or be indifferent to the benefits of profitability, nor should it be greedy or predatory in its pursuit of profit.

Profitable businesses have the capacity to pay taxes, correct mistakes without going under, provide fair wages and benefits, be generous toward employees and customers, be compassionate toward the needy, and be environmentally responsible in a world that needs better care.

2) Business should be socially beneficial and compassionate.

Business should not be indifferent or uncaring about its social impacts, nor should it be willfully harmful toward others.

Business should be socially beneficial in its products and services, and socially compassionate towards individuals, families, and communities.

3) Business should be spiritually open and respectful.

We live in a multicultural world where people differ in their spiritual and moral value systems. These differences have sometimes led to hostility, fear, anger, and even hatred.

We want to reclaim the freedom to be openly spiritual and moral in the business sphere.

Business should not be intolerant, fearful, or disrespectful toward differing beliefs and values.

Business should foster a climate where people with differing beliefs and values have permission to interact positively and respectfully, within the boundaries of legality in the local context.

4) Business should be environmentally responsible.

Our world should be cared for as our home and as God’s creation.

Business should not be indifferent to the environment, nor should it be reckless or destructive.

Business should be environmentally aware and proactive.

We believe business should be morally praiseworthy.

Business should not be amoral – without any values other than profit, nor should it be immoral – actively causing social, environmental, or spiritual harm in the pursuit of profit.

Social, environmental, and spiritual values have somehow been relegated to the domain of non-profits, whereas business has become associated with greed and the uncaring pursuit of profit as the highest goal.

We believe it’s time to restore business to a morally praiseworthy activity that helps and serves people, and brings good to families and communities.

We believe business should follow the Bible’s guidance to become morally praiseworthy.

The Bible has relevant and useful guidance for doing business that is morally praiseworthy, even for those who may not believe everything in it.

A morally praiseworthy business embodies the three great “love” commands in the Bible – to love God, to love your neighbor, and to love each other.
