Business & Leadership

Mount Mercy's respected business and leadership programs provide a structure for innovation and cross-collaboration.

Equipping you with desired skills

Designed to empower you with the skills most desired by employers, our contemporary programs fit your goals and needs—all the while maximizing flexibility and making it possible for you to balance work, life, and school.

Our graduate and accelerated programs are tailored to the unique needs of adult students. We understand that you have commitments outside the classroom—which is why we offer our programs on-campus and online (live and on-demand) in 5- and 10-week evening classes.

Applicable curriculum adds to student success

We’re intently focused on building the skills you need to be a successful and productive member of the workforce. From relevant and applicable coursework, to internships and partnerships with regional employers, our strong community relationships help you find your niche and build your dream career—and employers know this. Our graduates are in demand among regional employers.

The entire staff at MMU worked to ensure I could pursue both my career and education goals without missing a beat. The flexibility of the program even allowed me to continue coaching my son’s traveling baseball team.
