Criminal Justice MBA Programs Online

A degree in Criminal Justice can prepare students for a variety of professional positions, from correctional institutions to the court systems, from law enforcement to private corporations with ties to the criminal justice system. Whether graduates plan to pursue a career in police work, or simply want to work in criminal justice on the administrative side, there are a variety of career options for those with graduate degrees. For example, holding an MBA with a concentration in Criminal Justice is the perfect educational background for management or leadership roles in state correctional institutions. A Master of Public Administration in Criminal Justice is the perfect graduate degree from someone interested in court system administration.

  • Northcentral University's MBA with a specialization in Criminal Justice is intended for graduate students who wish to pursue the managerial or administrative side of the justice system. Rather than becoming corrections officers, police personnel, or pursuing legal careers, these graduates work behind the scenes in managerial or leadership roles. The court clerk who manages a judge's calendar and acts as office administrator would be an ideal position for someone with an MBA with a Criminal Justice specialization. Students in this program study organized crime, forensic sciences, sociology topics such as drugs and society, as well as completing a research project in the criminal justice field.
  • Anna Maria College offers an MPA with a focus in Justice Administration. Such a degree prepares students for a variety of administrative job positions within the criminal justice system. Not only can graduates seek positions in the public sector, but also with private third party companies charged with assisting the justice system. For example, students gain a competitive advantage for administrative or managerial positions working for private probation management companies. Likewise, administrative or managerial positions in pubic justice systems, including federal, state, or local court systems and correctional institutions are another career option for graduates of this program.
  • Kaplan University offers numerous graduate degree programs focusing on Criminal Justice. Student can select from an MPA in Criminal Justice, a Master of Science in Criminal Justice, or MS degrees in Emergency Services, Homeland Security and Emergency Management, or Legal Studies. Each degree program is designed to prepare students for a different sector of public administration or criminal justice. Students working on undergraduate studies in these areas can take graduate level courses to fast track their master's degree studies. Alternatively, graduate students can apply directly to the School of Criminal Justice and choose their area of focus. Public Administration degrees focus primarily on the administrative functions necessary for criminal justice systems, while MS degree programs prepare students for careers in law enforcement, corrections, or emergency response.
  • Bellevue University's MS in Justice Administration and Crime Management degree program prepares students for managerial or administrator position in the criminal justice system. The program requires 36 credit hours to complete, with courses offered in forensics, criminal behavior, crime analysis, case management, communication, technology, and writing as each area relates to criminal justice professionals.
