Accelerated MBA

The accelerated master of business administration degree program helps students to achieve proficiency in the fundamentals of business and to see the growing value in ethical leadership, globalization, sustainability, and social responsibility.

In the accelerated program, students choose between two years of full-time study or one year of full-time study and two years of part-time study. All students follow a cohort format during the first year, which covers most of the core MBA curriculum. The cohort courses are scheduled with a full-time credit load of 9 credits in both the fall and spring semesters and 6 credits in the summer session in a condensed, five-week format. Starting their second year, students have the option of shifting into a part-time format to complete the final core course and electives.
