Master’s in Business Administration

One of the most common questions about and MBA is this: Why get one?

We can’t answer that for you, personally. But, we can tell you why students at Alliant International University’s California School of Leadership and Management decided getting their MBA was exactly what they needed.

For their careers. Coursework in international marketing, organizational behavior, strategy, technology, and analysis expands your knowledge base. Our integration of practical training allows you take that gained knowledge and apply it in real-world settings.

For their passions. Lifelong learning, drive for achievement, or a desire to ever-climb. Whatever your passion within education or practice, Alliant’s California School of Leadership’s MBA program will ignite a fire for more.

For their relationships. Our MBA has a community service focus. Our faculty maintains strong connections. Our industry affiliations offer a wide network for new opportunities. This program is designed to bring you closer to the business industry and the people in it.

Getting an MBA will afford you the opportunity to climb ever-higher in your career, to build invaluable relationships in your industry, and follow your passion as far as it may lead you.

MBA Courses


Hands-on Training

In business, you will often have to make split-second decisions and think on your feet—we know a textbook can’t teach you that. So we’ve designed our programs to include a balance of real-world, hands-on training that will help you reach new heights in your career.

Executive-in-Residence Program

You will have the opportunity to take part in a six-month executive-in-residence mentorship program. You will be matched with an executive who will mentor you and offer invaluable professional development along with networking opportunities.


The Capstone course matches student teams with client companies to work on live projects. Students work directly with the companies on well-defined deliverables. These course projects connect students to businesses, getting their foot in the door early on.

Guest Speaker Series

Every month, we host an evening with a guest speaker. You will have the opportunity to not only learn from but also network with, our speakers and guests from a wide range of industries.

Degree Concentrations

Here, you won’t be a jack of all trades and a master of none.

With degree concentrations that allow you to specialize in a particular discipline, you can choose where your expertise lies and become a true master of your chosen subject. Begin your expertise in traditional, emerging, and even interdisciplinary fields in a four-course concentration, including:

  • Corporate Finance
  • Entrepreneurship and Innovation
  • Hospitality Management – In partnership with the Vatel Institute of Hospitality and Management at Alliant International University
  • Information and Technology Management
  • Marketing and Digital Trends
  • Management and Leadership
  • Build your own option

Perpetual Improvement

At the California School of Management and Leadership, we believe in perpetual improvement. Your time with Alliant will serve as a foundation upon which you will build your future. And that foundation is primed for lifelong learning. Here, perpetual improvement means taking hold of the opportunities that our well-established network has to offer, in order to stay on the forefront of an ever-evolving industry.

Industry Connection

The school has an advisory board comprised of industry leaders who help guide our school and — most importantly— our students. Our board members are deeply entrenched members of the business community and help us keep our curriculum relevant while providing invaluable connections to the industry.

Industry Accreditation

We are in candidacy for accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). We pride ourselves in providing the highest quality business education, and ACBSP accreditation will certify that the teaching and learning processes within our programs meet the most rigorous educational standards.

The Alliant Choice

We don’t take it lightly when a student chooses us for their education. Making Alliant International University your home means choosing more than just a school. It means choosing quality, from faculty to finish.

Learning at Alliant is not just about coursework, though that’s paramount. It’s not just about internships, though they’re vital. The greatness of an institution of higher education can be found in the harmonious balance of both scholarship and hands-on training. It’s also found in those you are learning with, learning from, and how you will transform your education into impact.

In our interconnected world, homogeny has been replaced with heterogeneity. At Alliant, it’s not about “fitting in,” because there is no one way to be. Our student body is uniquely diverse, they come from a world of backgrounds and they’ve all had a unique experience. Your exposure to this wealth of diverse experiences will help shape you into a more culturally- refined individual, while still sharing the one thing that all of our students have in common: A desire to better the world.

Helpful. Supportive. Open. These are just some of the ways our staff has been described by students. From application to graduation, we are here to help you succeed. And our faculty? They’re some of the best in their field, working professionals who are not only intimately familiar with changing trends but are often the ones making change happen.

We know that everyone has a unique story and situation. That is why we tailor our programs to fit the needs of first-time freshmen and transfer students alike. We firmly believe that education should be accessible to all. Alliant will meet you right where you are. Right when you need us.
