Degree completion in as little as 12 months
This track is perfect for students with a business undergraduate degree and work experience. You can anticipate a fast-paced program that will build upon your education and work — with 28 hours in the classroom and 14 hours in equivalent instructional activities outside the classroom.
Degree completion in as little as 16 months
Interested in adding a business graduate degree to a communications undergrad or other non-business undergrad degree? The fast track program alternates between quantitative courses taken in the traditional 15-week format (accounting and corporate finance) and qualitative courses (marketing, organizational behavior, etc.) in a fast-track format. It's a comprehensive format that provides more in-class time for optimum comprehension of quantitative subjects but still offers some acceleration with the course design.
Degree completion in as little as four academic semesters or two years
This traditional M.B.A. delivery format is a practical option for working professionals whose lives are a balance of career, family and graduate study. It's also ideal for international students. Most classes are 15 weeks.
