Join a breakthrough Online MBA (OMBA) program

The Online MBA (OMBA) from Northeastern University’s D’Amore-McKim School of Business develops your knowledge, effectiveness, and leadership abilities more deeply than traditional online MBAs.

Learn by doing with an experiential OMBA

Learning by doing is a hallmark of a Northeastern MBA. Through immersive experiences, you will integrate classroom learning to help identify and frame business challenges in actual organizations.

You will focus on complex industry or company-specific issues where multiple approaches are possible, and numerous solutions need evaluation.

Customize your courses to match your interests

The OMBA provides you with choices and flexibility to position yourself for success.

The program consists of 21 core credits and 29 elective credits. That means two-thirds of your classes are electives which you customize to make your degree truly personal.

Choose your own pace

Built specifically for working professionals, you can complete the degree in as few as 18 months or adjust the schedule to meet your needs.

Courses are 7 weeks long to allow you to deep dive into each topic. Stack courses or take them one at a time – you get to choose your own pace.

Be a future-focused business leader

You will take on two societal challenges that highlight how business concerns and societal challenges of our times are intertwined.

You will delve into stakeholder values such as diversity and equity, social justice, sustainability, and other issues impacting our society.

Attend live courses and connect with faculty, peers, and alumni

Interact personally with faculty and business executives through optional live sessions, faculty office hours, and in your experience-powered core courses.

You’ll also meet with a dedicated OMBA success manager to help you through the program and connect you to our network of 50,000+ D’Amore-McKim alumni.

Specialize in your choice of focus areas

Through a rigorous core business curriculum, you’ll gain perspective on global issues and innovation-based competition that organizations face.

Through your elective coursework, you will complete two focus areas in business analytics, finance, and/or innovation and entrepreneurship.

Northeastern's Signature Experiential Learning

Northeastern’s Online MBA program is centered on two semester-long EXPO courses – one a real-world business challenge and the other a pressing issue at the intersection of business and society. EXPO develops skills and mindsets for success analyzing and acting on both kinds of challenges. EXPO focuses on challenges that will both sharpen skills for immediate impact and also develop capabilities for effectiveness and leadership as the business world changes. Through EXPO, learners practice applying the knowledge and skills they develop in core courses and get real-time feedback from senior executives to sharpen their skills even further. EXPO electives are also available.

Fully online

The program is 100% online, including experience-powered learning. Courses are asynchronous with optional live sessions. 

Flexible timing

Our program is schedule-friendly for working professionals. You can complete the degree in as few as 18 months. Or adjust the schedule to meet your needs.

Customizable curriculum

Our 50-credit hour curriculum is divided into two segments: 21 core credits and 29 elective credits. Optional focus areas are business analytics, finance, and innovation and entrepreneurship.

Experience-powered learning

Experience-powered learning runs throughout the program. In the core curriculum, you’ll work on two real-world business challenges, one focused on competing in a changing business environment and the other on a business social responsibility issue. The program includes additional elective experience-powered learning segments you choose from a set of options.  
 
In the first challenge, you’ll take on the role of a c-level executive grappling with setting strategy in a changing business world. You’ll work in a team with fellow students and consult with current or recently retired senior executives playing the part of CEO – and then make your recommendations. Based on feedback from the CEO, you’ll make adjustments. In the process, you’ll deepen your knowledge of the business subjects you’ve studied, learn how to apply that knowledge to critical issues in real-world situations, and hone skills, particularly the human skills so pivotal to business success. 
 
Experience-powered learning focuses on challenges that both sharpen your skills for immediate impact and develop capabilities for effectiveness and leadership as the business world changes.

Cutting edge core curriculum

The OMBA core prepares you to make an immediate impact while positioning you to be a critical contributor and leader as business changes. All courses in the core include business fundamentals but also go beyond, delving into emerging issues and ideas. Courses also include business social responsibility elements and develop human skills critical to success in any aspect of business, particularly as digitalization proceeds apace. Innovation-driven strategy and global strategy are among the core courses.
