Your Education. Your Career. Your Way.
Like you, many of our students work full-time jobs while completing their MBA, so we want to help your education by giving you plenty of options as you take courses that are 16 weeks in length. Depending upon the courses you take, your 36 credit hours* of class time could take place via:
- A traditional face-to-face classroom environment;
- A "hybrid" option where half the coursework is completed online and the other half in a classroom; or
- A completely online option.
Based upon key benchmarks, you could have the standardized test requirement waived from your enrollment processes.
*One pre-requisite foundation course may be required.
Learn from the Best
You'll also be taught by a stellar faculty of professionals and scholars who bring real-life experience to the classroom, instead of putting your education in the hands of a graduate assistant.
