The Full-time Flex MBA is a 16-month accelerated program that begins annually in mid-August and follows this general schedule:

  • Core curriculum during the first two semesters with some core following into the third semester
  • Summer internships to gain valuable real-world experience and build your resume
  • Elective courses in the final semester to prepare for chosen field and job market trends
  • Professional development activities throughout the program and after graduation
  • Flexibility to extent the program an additional semester to a 21-month format

A Tightly Integrated Core Curriculum

The full-time MBA curriculum is a package of tightly woven business concepts that overlap and influence one another. Faculty from different subject areas team-teach in many classes to provide students with a holistic view of the complex environment in which organizations operate. For example, a single Harvard Business Review case study is examined in marketing, accounting and organizational behavior courses to ensure that students understand the complexities associated with high-level decision making in an organization.
