  • Mini and Full Sessions

    To create the most modular MBA possible, we offer six "bite-sized" sessions and three longer sessions throughout the year:

      fall semester spring semester summer session
    mini-session 1 7 weeks 7 weeks 5 weeks
    mini-session 2 7 weeks 7 weeks 5 weeks
    full session 15 weeks 15 weeks 8 weeks

    The mini-sessions offered each fall, spring and summer allow you to pick up 1.5-credit classes that suit your busy schedule. The 15-week sessions, on the other hand, are 3-credit courses that last the entire traditional fall and spring semesters. Occasionally we offer courses during Winter Break.

    You can apply to, be accepted to and start the program as late as the first day of the second mini-session in any semester. Perhaps you know that you can't start the fall semester in August due to a work obligation. No problem: Start classes in the second seven-week session instead.

  • A 100 Percent Online MBA

    Through our online courses, you can study, participate in class discussions and submit assignments from anywhere with an Internet connection.

    Our online MBA classes meet the same AACSB International accreditation rigor as those offered in the classroom. They are the same courses that are taught on campus, often by the same professors. Online courses are highly structured and require frequent interactions with the instructor and other students enrolled in the course. Your professors are available to answer questions over the phone, via email or in person.

    You can take all or just a few courses online, allowing you to complete your degree if you move out of the area or when other circumstances, such as traveling for work, prevent you from participating in traditional classroom instruction.

  • Part-Time and Full-Time Options

    As a student in the MBA program, you can choose to take a full-time course load of 9 to 12 credits or a part-time course load of less than 9 credits. Both options provide you the flexibility to take a combination of 1.5- and 3-credit courses, available in a seven- or 15-week format.

     

  • Evening Classes

    Our classes are offered in the evenings—ideal for the unique schedule demands of today’s working professionals. Whether you’re looking to accelerate your learning or pace yourself over time, the MBA gives you the freedom to advance your career without sidetracking it.
