What Makes Butler’s MBA Programs Stand Out?

Personalized Leadership Coaching

Butler MBA and Online MBA students benefit from a one-of-a-kind, robust support system of coaches who guide them every step of the way. Your personal certified leadership coach, assigned to you at the beginning of your program, will help hone your leadership skills, provide guidance, and serve as a sounding board as you work toward professional success. Butler’s strong network of support will empower your path to successful business leadership.

Student-Focused Curriculum

Whether you choose the Online MBA or self-paced MBA on campus, the programs are designed for working professionals to be able to balance work, school, and life. You choose the pace and we’ll empower your path.

Accreditation Matters

The Butler MBA is one of two programs in Indianapolis to be accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide. Less than 5% of business schools have earned this prestigious accreditation.

Highly Experiential Learning

We infuse hands-on learning throughout the MBA and Online MBA curriculums and prepare students to apply classroom concepts to real-world situations.
