MSU Denver Advantage: Quality, Affordability and Value.

MSU Denver’s goal is to provide students with a valuable, high-quality, and experience-based MBA program through excellence in teaching, individual attention and hands-on experience at an exceptional value.

We teach courses in-person and online.


The MSU Denver College of Business is accredited by AACSB, earned by only 5 percent of the world’s business schools.


Colorado residents can earn their MBA degree for less than $22,000. The MBA program has lowered tuition rates for international and out-of-state students.


Quality combined with affordability provides high-value to our students. MBA students also enjoy a professional peer network specific to graduate students. Our flexible course offerings (online, synchronous, or in-person) also adds value.
