Program Options


Accelerated Two-Year

This unique offering allows Part-time MBA students to complete their entire MBA within two years. If getting your MBA quickly is of interest, this is an excellent option. The Accelerated Two-Year option is only available on weeknights.  

Accelerated Two-Year Sample Schedule


Weeknights

The weeknight option is the most popular of the three options and is known for its unparalleled flexibility and options. Students in this option can vary the pace of their MBA, allowing them to finish in as few as two years or as many as six years.

Saturday

The Saturday option is ideal for working professionals who wish to take most of their courses on Saturday. Year-round Saturday offerings allow you to move through the program at the pace that is best for you. Please note that while the vast majority of the program can be completed on Saturday, attendance may be required on other days (i.e., Friday, Sunday) during the January and late-summer intensive periods.
