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

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

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.
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.
