The MBA is a broadening degree that prepares students for managing business in a variety of areas. Students from all backgrounds and undergraduate degrees can earn an MBA.
The oldest business school west of the Mississippi, USU’s Huntsman School of Business has been offering degrees since 1894 and has long held prestigious accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International and continues to be on the forefront of advanced business education.
The mission of the MBA program is to provide students with a relevant and rigorous background in business, increase student problem-solving and critical analysis skills, and develop the next generation of business leaders. Students are trained to lead, manage, and improve business performance. Students learn how to commercialize profitable ideas more efficiently, economically, and successfully. They possess the know-how to improve existing businesses and create new businesses, and are armed with cutting-edge intelligence and analytic tools to gain a deeper and clearer understanding of both domestic and global markets, customers, and competition.
The Jon M. Huntsman School of Business may charge differential tuition for this program. Differential tuition is an added cost per credit for courses in the program. See the last page in the USU Tuition & Fee schedule for more information.
People with an MBA have the opportunity to enter many career areas in business, including:
- Commercial banking

Many other possibilities are open to people with an MBA depending on the student’s undergraduate degree. Graduates will gain the business skills and knowledge to succeed in a wide variety of fields and with companies and organizations across the spectrum.
