The MBA program is designed with the working professional in mind. It consists of a minimum of 30 semester hours of credit. The MBA is delivered through an accelerated 10-month online format or a flexible program featuring online and/or blended delivery methods each semester.

  • Accelerated online 10-month: Web-based courses are geared for an accelerated MBA experience. Highly motivated learners can progress through the 7-week courses. Students are challenged by a variety of assignments and learning opportunities. Students do not have to be online at a certain time; however, there are deadlines for assignments.
  • Online: Web-based courses are geared to provide motivated learners greater flexibility as they are challenged by a variety of assignments and learning opportunities. Students do not have to be online at a certain time; however, there are deadlines for assignments.

We advise students to take the combination of residential or online courses that best balances their needs for personal attention and flexibility.
