Chaminade University’s Master of Business Administration (MBA) Program has been a Hawai’i leader for 30 years. From the beginning, our program has emphasized values-driven, graduate management education. Our curriculum provides knowledge of how successful organizations conduct business and the skills needed to manage people, projects, and systems. Our graduates are recognized both for professional accomplishments and significant civic and community contributions.
The MBA program offers three concentrations: Accounting, Island Business and Not-for-Profit Management. Students who do not elect to pursue a concentration will graduate with a general MBA degree.
The Accounting MBA is designed for students who have completed undergraduate degrees in accounting and who need additional coursework to fulfill the academic requirements for taking the CPA Exam and achieving CPA certification.
The Island Business concentration at Chaminade is designed to build on core MBA coursework and prepare students to do business in and contribute to a mature, thriving Hawai’i or other island setting.
The Not-for-Profit MBA concentration prepares students for management and leadership positions in not-for-profit enterprises such as charities, hospitals, and churches.

We welcome applicants who hold a bachelor’s degree from an accredited university. Successful applicants show a record of accomplishment and professional promise. Applicants are admitted at any time during the year. Courses begin four times per year.
The MBA admissions committee makes acceptance decisions after reviewing transcripts, resumes, and personal statement essays. The application process may include an informal interview. Accepted applicants come from a wide variety of undergraduate majors. Generally, but not always, students have earned GPAs above 3.0 and have three or more years work experience.
