Today’s businesses face unrelenting markets and unprecedented rates of change. Executives, senior leaders, and entrepreneurs must expertly navigate the challenges to achieve transformational results for their organizations.

Bellevue University’s Strategic Master of Business Administration (SMBA) is a performance-oriented MBA that emphasizes business and organization value creation. This 36 credit hour degree provides tangible outcomes to help you excel in such areas as analyzing markets and industries, challenging competitors, creating customer value while preserving loyalty, and sustaining capital and cash flow. These outcomes are integrated with crucial business skills, including creative and quantitative problem solving, decision-making, effective communication, and building trust relationships.

Learning Outcomes

The Strategic MBA will prepare you to:

  • Use current and predicted market conditions to create, enhance, or exit a business.
  • Research competitor market, product, and service value propositions and devise strategies and tactics to compete successfully.
  • Integrate inter and intra-personal communication and trust-building techniques to forge teams, partners, and alliances to achieve sustained market goals.
  • Envision market and organizational-based success and use vision maps to craft strategies, tactics, and operations that propel success.
  • Develop data, analysis, and courses of actions that make problem solving, decision-making, and sound judgments possible.
  • Solve market and organization-based problems through creativity.
  • Develop the value chain of an organization and measure value for customers. Determine how customer value creates cash-flows back to an organization from the value chain.
