Olivet College’s premier graduate program is our Masters of Business Administration (MBA) in Insurance. Our online, instructor-led, virtual program allows you to participate from anywhere, on any device, via the internet. Through this program, you will learn from expert faculty who are industry executives and professionals, and have plenty of opportunities to network and collaborate with classmates from all over the United States.

Olivet College has been approved by Michigan to participate in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements. NC-SARA is a voluntary, regional approach to state oversight of postsecondary distance education. At this time, California is not a SARA approved state, consequently we will not be accepting students that live in California until further notice or approval is granted.

The degree is designed for insurance professionals and does not require that the student’s undergraduate degree is in the area of risk management or insurance.

Degree Requirements

A total of 48 credits must be completed within 7 years to earn the degree. Each course is 3 credit hours. Students must earn a 3.0 or higher grade point average to continue in the program and to graduate with the MBA degree.
