The Lake Erie College Parker MBA program is among the fastest-growing and most highly-regarded programs in the State of Ohio. In addition to our traditional MBA program and our 11-month accelerated MBA, our customized on-site programs have been selected by some of Ohio's largest employers including industry leaders in the areas of manufacturing, health care and energy.

The Lake Erie College MBA program was established in 1981, and has since graduated over 1,300 business and non-profit leaders. In 2010, the program was renamed The Parker MBA in memory of the late Patrick S. Parker, chairman emeritus of Parker Hannifin Corporation and global industrial leader.

Our rolling admission allows you to begin your MBA at the beginning of any semester: August (fall), January (spring) or May (summer).

Pursuing a Parker MBA allows you to become empowered to take on greater managerial challenges that will help you advance as a leader, while developing the strategic skills necessary, manage the functional areas of an organization.
