FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — Students in
Northern Arizona University’s (NAU) Master of Administration (MAdmin) program now
have two additional specialization options for their master’s degrees—Small
Business Administration and Justice Studies. Other master’s degree
specializations offered include Project Management, Health Sciences, and
According to the recent U.S.
census, more than 50% of small businesses fail within one year and more than
80% fail within three years. NAU’s new MAdmin offering in Small Business
Administration is tailored to help graduates with the long-term success of
their companies in a more focused way than a traditional MBA. In fact, no prior
business degree is required for the program, and the classes concentrate on the
many areas an owner needs to know to run a successful small business.
The Justice Studies emphasis of the MAdmin
program offers law enforcement personnel a graduate degree option to expand
their leadership skills and theoretical thinking. Courses focus on current
issues facing criminal justice, including counterterrorism and intelligence. The
program employs instructors with advanced degrees and practical experience to
provide students with a balance between theory and real-world tactical skills.
All of these programs can be completed
entirely online allowing students to take classes around their work and personal
life. Classes are offered in 7- and 16-week lengths, and students can begin the
MAdmin program at almost anytime. Its affordable tuition rate has also earned NAU’s
Master of Administration program a Best Buy designation by GetEducated.com.
