Business (Accelerated)

The business major offers you the opportunity to integrate theoretical constructs with practical experience gained outside of the classroom.

A Business Program for Working Adults

Complete your degree in as little as 18-24 months! (based on program and transfer credit)

Coursework offers you a broader understanding of management, accounting, finance, marketing, communication, economics, legal and ethical practices and research within the context of a business organization. 

By design, the program prepares you for professional positions in the public or private sectors, or for graduate study within the business discipline.


Start taking classes when it’s convenient for you—in-person or online.

Our courses are designed for working adults like you—so you can work, spend time with family and friends, and still earn your degree.

There's no need to wait months to start taking classes. At Mount Mercy, we have nine start dates throughout the year, and class blocks are every five weeks.
