Master of Business Administration Program

The Lake Erie College Parker MBA program is among the fastest-growing and most highly-regarded programs in the State of Ohio. In addition to our traditional MBA program, we also offer our customized on-site programs which have been selected by some of Ohio’s largest employers including industry leaders in the areas of manufacturing, health care and energy.

Our rolling admission allows you to begin your MBA at the beginning of any semester: August (fall), January (spring) or May (summer).

The partnership between Lake Erie College and LCCC allows students to obtain their MBA their way.  In addition to our classroom-based face-to-face sessions on the LCCC campus we also offer the full Parker MBA program 100 percent online.  Students may also choose to follow a hybrid format by mixing both online and traditional classroom courses to allow even greater flexibility of scheduling.
