Program Description

Full-Time MBA Program

The Full-Time MBA Program is a selective, cohort-based program featuring a collaborative learning environment emphasizing teamwork and leadership. Admission to the program is highly competitive. Applications are accepted for the fall semester only.

Flex-Time MBA Program

Flex-Time MBA students study at either a full- or part-time pace, switching back and forth as their work and study needs dictate. With courses offered primarily in the evening, this program is particularly well-suited for those who wish to remain employed while they earn their degree. Students in the Flex-Time Program may begin in the fall or spring semester.

Accelerated Part-Time MBA Program (APT)

The Accelerated Part-Time (APT) MBA Program is designed for professionals who want to complete the MBA in 28 months while working full-time. Additionally, students enjoy the benefits of a cohort-based core curriculum. Each fall and spring semester, students take two courses during the week and one course on Saturday. Additional course work in the summer and January terms facilitates completion of the program in 28 months. Applications are accepted for the fall semester only. (Note: Due to the 150-credit hour program requirements, APT students are unable to major in Accountancy.)

Admission Requirements

Applicants are required to submit an official accredited postsecondary institutional transcript recognized by the U.S. Department of Education indicating a conferred bachelor’s degree.  International students must provide an appropriately authenticated official transcript issued by a governmental authority that attests to the successful completion of a program considered to be equivalent to an accredited bachelor’s degree.
