The MBA is offered in a traditional two-year full-time format and a two-year (including summer classes) part-time evening format. The full-time MBA, with internship opportunities during the summer between the two years, is an immersive experience for students who choose to pursue a graduate program full time.

Degree Details

Full-time MBA
The full-time MBA program delivers a world-class curriculum that is also flexible enough to let you tailor your MBA to suit your professional goals. Required core courses in economics, quantitative methods, management, marketing, finance, and operations management provide a solid foundation and prepare you to think critically about business issues in subsequent elective courses.

Students focus their studies in finance, marketing, systems (operations management), management, or pursue specialty paths, such as entrepreneurship and real estate.

Evening MBA
The Evening MBA program is specifically designed for the working professional. Course work provides students with a strong foundation in business theory and application. Taught by the same nationally-renowned faculty who teach in our full-time MBA program, the Evening MBA program gives students and their company access to the latest cutting-edge business knowledge and practices.

Executive MBA
If you're an experienced, working professional, you can obtain your master of business administration (MBA) degree in less than two years while you continue to work. The program is specifically designed for working business professionals, decision makers, entrepreneurs, and professionals working in engineering, medical, legal, and scientific fields. You will gain knowledge of basic business disciplines—marketing, organizational behavior, etc.—then integrate them into your everyday, decision-making processes.

Year one lays the foundation and culminates with an integrative seminar that helps you apply what you've learned to your own organizations. Year two course work takes a broad approach, thematically based on thinking strategically in a global economy.
