“The MBA program at Dakota Wesleyan University was a challenging and rewarding experience.  As someone who likes to push myself to do more, learn more and be more, the DWU MBA program was the perfect choice for me.”

Christopher J. Foster, MBA

The entrepreneurial and strategic leadership focus of our MBA program is enhanced by a values-driven emphasis on servant leadership, making both intelligent and ethical business decisions, and effective communication. Students are challenged to think critically and plan their way through business issues that are in a constant state of flux because of the dynamics of changing environmental factors.
