The goal of the College of Business Administration at Niagara University is to provide quality business education theoretically rooted in the social and behavioral sciences and matured with real world business experiences.

Niagara University's MBA program employs a multidisciplinary pedagogy to provide a leading edge graduate business education by maintaining a program with a traditional emphasis on functional areas of management including finance, accounting, economics, statistics, and management while simultaneously incorporating current thinking in teams, conflict resolution, negotiations, and change management. All of this is done in a global context and with sensitivity toward ethical decision making and social responsibility.

Instructional methods include student teams, experiential learning and case study. The MBA curriculum is consistent with Niagara University's commitment to education as a primary instrument for the elimination of poverty through the development of human capital skills.

Classes emphasize communication and team-building skills. Group projects and case studies are required in most of the courses. A major objective of the program is the development of strong interpersonal skills.
