Academics & Curriculum

What is the time commitment for a class?

  • For each hour you spend in class, you will spend about two hours studying and preparing outside of class.
  • Blended courses will require about the same total number of hours, but with fewer classroom hours and increased hours outside of the classroom for online engagement and study.

The Application Process

Do you require the GMAT?

No. The GMAT is only one of many ways we assess your readiness for the part-time MBA. Learn more about the criteria.

What happens after I submit my application?

An admissions adviser will review your file and present it to the Admissions Committee. Once a decision is made, typically within two to three weeks of your final application, we will contact you immediately. 

When should I apply? When are the application deadlines?

You can apply anytime. We admit students for the fall and spring semesters only.

Can I take classes before being accepted into the Evening UST MBA program?

No. You must be a fully admitted, degree-seeking student to enroll in Evening UST MBA courses.

Will credits transfer into the Evening UST MBA program?

Yes. Up to four courses (12 credits) may be waived. See Course Waivers.

Do you require a transcript from every program or course I attended for which college credit was granted?

Yes, transcripts are required from every institution at which you completed coursework for academic credit. The only exceptions are for advanced placement, PSEO coursework (college classes taken during high school), and study abroad transfer classes.
