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. Today it is one of the fastest growing and most highly regarded programs in the State of Ohio.
