Evening & Online MBA Programs

Southeastern is committed to the idea that servant leaders can be world changers, and our MBA program prepares you to be just that. Through our Christ-centered curriculum, you will gain the skills necessary not only to succeeding in business but also to making moral decisions in the workplace. Christian principles are the core strength of our courses, from marketing to accounting and economics to corporate finance. Our esteemed business faculty members, your most valuable resource at Southeastern, are committed to modeling these principles. Choose between convenient course options to best fit your busy schedule and learning style — evening classes at our Lakeland campus or online courses.They have spent decades working in the banking industry and major accounting firms, starting and running their own businesses, selling and marketing retail, working in information technology and serving in the military. All the knowledge and wisdom they gained through their careers is at your disposal, presented through the Christian worldview that all our faculty members share. In addition to our world-class faculty, we make it a point to offer flexible course schedules to fit the needs of busy professionals who want additional training, recent college grads who desire an MBA to boost their job search and those looking for a quick transition to a new career. You can take either evening classes at our Lakeland campus or online classes and complete the program in as few as 12 months. If you prefer a classroom setting, you will commute to Southeastern one night each week for class. Or if you choose online, you will connect with your professors and classmates through our online course management system, MyFire. The constant interaction through discussion boards, email, and phone and video conferences provides you with valuable feedback, and you have the freedom to work in whichever environment is most comfortable for you.
