A Convenient MBA for the Modern World
Your time is a precious commodity, so you should love the accelerated MBA program here at UHCL. Each class is only 8 weeks long, which reduces the time it takes to finish our 36 credit-hour program*:
- Full-time, 14 months: 2 courses per 8-week term across the fall, spring and summer semesters
- Part-time, 28 months: 1 courses per 8-week term across the fall, spring and summer semesters
Because the demands of your busy work schedule could make regular classroom attendance difficult, we've devised two class formats for you:
- A completely online option; or
- A "hybrid" option where you take half of each class online and take the other half in a classroom.
And for students who meet certain requirements, you can receive a waiver from taking any sort of standardized test as part of your enrollment.
*One pre-requisite foundation course may be required.
Your Professors Want You to Prosper
You'll also learn from stellar professors, all of whom have achieved success in the classroom and business world. And because they want to pass on their knowledge to you, you'll never see a graduate assistant teaching one of your classes.
2016-2017 Texas-Resident Tuition Rates: $1,691 for one, three-hour course*
