Program Overview

The AUSB MBA is a 36-unit program that concentrates on the development of strategic
leadership competencies in a collaborative learning environment built upon the socially
responsible values of the Antioch University MBA.

This intensive 16-month MBA degree program features courses in social business,
corporate/non-profit management, and strategic leadership. AUSB educates a generation of
leaders with a strong sense of social awareness and values, who embrace the need to give back to their communities. Our students learn to be strategic, values-based leaders who make a significant contribution to their companies, organizations, and communities by applying the
latest management tools, models, and theory.

AUSB’s MBA program offers students two schedule options for completing your MBA while
managing multiple life priorities. Our traditional, face-to- face schedule features weekly classes with faculty, peers, and mentors on our beautiful Santa Barbara campus. Optionally, the hybrid schedule allows you to complete some coursework online while balancing other full-time responsibilities. Both options will immerse you in a rigorous yet supportive learning environment.

Our approach focuses on these pillars of excellence:

  • Holistic personal and professional development
  • Innovative problem solving and executive management techniques
  • Globalization and cross-cultural relationship training
  • High-power digital brand development and marketing communications
  • Social and environmental responsibility that empowers positive change
