The Master of Business Administration degree prepares students for responsible leadership positions in public, private and nonprofit organizations. Regardless of their undergraduate education, students will find a challenging program designed to meet their specific backgrounds and needs.

The degree is structured for full-time/in-person and full-time or part-time online students:

  • The full-time/in-person program is targeted to early career professionals, both nationally and internationally, who wish to jump-start their business career, and to those who wish to make a business-related career change. The program operates in cohorts so that students proceed through the sequence of required courses as a group. Students take six to seven courses a semester (offered in eight-week modules) and are expected to participate in experiential activities such as internships, mentoring and professional development activities. Delivery of the program is accelerated; students are able to earn the M.B.A. degree in 12 to 16 months.
  • The online program is designed for those who want maximum flexibility in pursuing their MBA degree. Students can take courses to suit their life: from 1 course at a time to a full-time course load. This is an ideal program for professionals who intend to keep working full-time while pursing the M.B.A., and for those students who want to pursue their MBA without commuting to campus.
