What You'll Study

As a working professional, your education is valued. Our focus is on providing you knowledge that will lead to career success and advancement. You will learn how to think more strategically, to make better decisions and become a stronger leader. Through immersion in real-world problems and leadership practice, you will work to identify problems, pinpoint new opportunities and implement real strategies — all of these will allow you to create a bigger impact for you and your organization.
 
Your time is valuable. What you learn in the classroom one night, you will be able to apply in the workplace the next day. Plus, you can earn your degree in as little as 19 months. This is possible as courses are offered in a business-friendly, concentrated format that meets one evening a week on campus, over a course of eight weeks. If you need additional flexibility, you can pursue your MBA entirely online. And for working individuals, we offer a GMAT/GRE waiver that will value your full-time professional experiences over a test score.
