MBU’s College of Business and Professional Studies — one of four academic colleges at the university — includes offerings in four strong, career-focused programs: business, social work, criminal justice, and health care administration.

More than one-quarter of Mary Baldwin undergraduates earn their degrees in majors from this college.

The flagship business program aligns with exciting trends in business strategy and education, including the concept of sustainability and the “triple bottom line.” Business faculty are taking curriculum to the next level with the “for-benefit” approach, a hybrid of for-profit and nonprofit models that describes more and more organizations that generate earned income while giving top priority to an explicit social mission. MBU’s business degree, complemented by several optional emphasis areas, is available fully online through our Baldwin Online and Adult Programs.

The newly endowed Susan Warfield Caples Social Work Program offers student placements here and abroad, with a successful practicum program in Honduras. The Carpenter Health Care Administration program — the only endowed undergraduate program of its kind in the United States — is led by experienced faculty and offers solid networking opportunities. Social work, criminal justice, and health care administration are available mostly online, with some on-campus coursework and practicum experiences.
