Management skills aren’t just for climbing the corporate ladder. Those who work in health care, information technology, law enforcement, or nonprofit organizations can also benefit from the lessons of business.

If you’re looking to lead in your field, Wilmington University’s Master of Business Administration and Master of Science in Management allow you to customize your graduate studies to your own career path.

WilmU’s MBA focuses on the financial and analytical aspects of business. Our MS in Management emphasizes strategy and communication. The coursework for both degree programs offer additional concentrations in Health Care Administration, Homeland Security, Management Information Systems, and Nonprofit Management, enabling professionals in those fields to acquire the knowledge necessary for leadership in their respective industries.

Available 100% online, the 12-course degree programs fit the schedules of working professionals. WilmU’s open admission policy means Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) scores are not required for application or enrollment. Plus, since classes start every eight weeks, you won’t have to wait long to get started.

  • The Health Care Administration concentration explores the changing environment of patient care, including the impact of public policy, the business of insurance, demographics and demand, and legal and ethical issues.
  • Law enforcement officers pursuing an MBA or MS in Management with the Homeland Security concentration will learn how to prepare and protect business environments with risk assessment and crisis management techniques.
  • Business depends upon technology. The Management Information Systems concentration provides technology’s handlers with the business abilities needed to oversee its implementation and use.
  • Nonprofit organizations play an increasing role in filling community needs. The Nonprofit Management concentration aims to train their leaders and future leaders to apply business strategies to their administrative governance, their fundraising efforts, and their core missions.

In addition, WilmU’s College of Business now offers a one-semester graduate-level course, “Topics in Business: Mini MBA,” an accelerated overview of the concepts examined in the MBA degree program. Its eight 90-minute classes, assigned readings, and writing projects allow college graduates to explore the possibility of earning a management degree before committing to the degree program. Once completed, the three-credit course may be applied as an elective toward WilmU’s MBA or MS in Management. For more information about the Mini MBA, please visit

Endorsed by the International Accreditation Council for Business Education, WilmU’s MBA and MS in Management programs offer cutting-edge courses taught by working professionals who bring real-world experience to the classroom. Small class sizes ensure individual access and personal attention, while career-focused content allow students to immediately put the lessons they’re learning to work on the job.
