Business Administration Programs

Excellence is rarely achieved by sitting still. Faced with a global competitive business environment and supported by new information and communication technologies, organizational structures are changing. Success in the new marketplace requires teams of executives working across functions and across borders. The Lee Business School (LBS) MBA programs offer students practical and theoretical applications that will provide them with a well-rounded business education. The LBS offers full/part-time evening MBA with concentrations in finance, human resources management, marketing, management information systems and new venture management. Students also have the option to pursue one of four dual programs: the MBA/JD (Juris Doctor), the MBA/DDM (Doctor of Dental Medicine), the MBA/MS in Hotel Administration and the MBA/MS in Management Information Systems. Students choose UNLV due to its “location, flexibility and affordability”. 

Courses are offered through our evening MBA Program or Executive MBA Program. The evening MBA program students have an average of 5 years of work experience and a majority of them remain employed while pursuing their MBA.  Executive MBA students average thirteen years of work experience with 10 in management roles; they bring their collective experience to the classroom to enhance the learning environment. Both programs provide students with a diverse learning environment through the undergraduate degrees students hold, the careers they work in, and the countries and cultures that they represent.

Our faculty members are committed to the continuous quality improvement of the curriculum and teaching, to increased vertical and horizontal integration of course material and to team learning. To achieve the best outcome, the faculty members embrace no single teaching method, but rather employ a combination of methods best suited to the particular objectives of the course. Lectures, group discussions, guest speakers, seminars, case studies, computer simulations, and individual and group research projects are frequently used within courses and across the curriculum.

All programs offered by the Lee Business School at UNLV are accredited by A.A.C.S.B. – The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
