Accelerated Two-Year

The Accelerated Two-Year program option is ideal for working professionals whose top priority is completing the MBA as quickly as possible and who want to remain in their current industry or function. This is a very intensive pace of study, requiring class attendance several days a week year-round, so please carefully consider if this option is the best fit for you. After two semesters, if your schedule or circumstances change, it is possible to switch to the Weeknights or Saturday program option.

Please note that students pursuing the Accelerated program option do not have access to on-campus recruiting of any kind, but have full access to all other Career Center for Working Professionals services and resources. 
 

When do you take classes?

Langone Part-time MBA classes are offered:
  • Monday through Thursday, 6:00 - 9:00 pm
  • Saturday, 9:00 am - 12:00 pm and 1:00 - 4:00 pm
Classes are offered in Fall, Spring and Summer semesters and through intensive periods in January and the late summer. 
  • Fall and Spring semesters are 12 weeks; each class meets one night per week or on Saturday.
  • Summer is divided into two six-week semesters; each class meets two nights per week or all day Saturday.
  • Courses held during intensive periods provide the opportunity to earn 1.5 or 3 credits at a faster pace and may be on weeknights or weekends. 

How often do you take classes?

As a student in the Accelerated Two-year program option, you will take classes year-round for the two years. You will typically take 9 credits, or 3 courses, versus the typical 6 credits, or 2 courses, each semester. Depending on your preference, you could take a mix of weeknight and Saturday classes.

Below you will find a sample schedule, however, please note that there are many different ways to complete the program in two years.

Please note: the Accelerated Two-year program option cannot be completed on a Saturday schedule or by taking classes only in Westchester.
