The MaineMBA

For more than 50 years, the University of Maine MBA has supported Maine entrepreneurs and leaders in upgrading their skills or launching a new career. The program has provided a place for entrepreneurs to generate ideas, recognize opportunities, foster relationships, and develop management skills. But higher education is changing. What will the next 50 years of business education look like?

The Challenge

Students looking to earn an MBA after completing their undergraduate education typically must delay entering the workforce for several years, meanwhile taking on additional student expenses and even debt. Partly as a result, nearly 70% of traditional two-year MBA programs reported admissions declines in the 2010s.

The Solution

The MaineMBA is among the most flexible and affordable MBA programs in the country. Applicants can choose a traditional two-year path, online learning, or an accelerated, intensive, full-time one-year program.

The Results

Our students take courses in the format that best fits their lives and schedules. The expedited track enables students to jump-start their career and start earning years earlier than other MBA programs. The options for flexibility and customization have proven popular: MaineMBA applications have risen by nearly 20% in recent years.
