Time to Complete

The Online MBA program can be completed in 17, 20, or 23 months. Students who start their MBA in 2024 will become members of the graduating class of 2026.

All students will take 10 required core courses and six electives to complete their degrees.

Delivery Format

Program content is delivered 100% online. Students will view class content virtually and complete class activities and assignments at specified times throughout each module. The program will have eight 12-week modules.

Electives, Concentrations and Certificates

In addition to earning an MBA degree, Online MBA students can pursue certificates in Diversity & Inclusion, Leading Change, and/or a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt. Students can also choose to concentrate in Finance/Accounting, Leadership, or Operations Management. Electives, concentrations, and certificate options are subject to change.

Professional Development

While learning will take place completely online, Online MBA students will be invited to participate in virtual and in-person professional development and networking opportunities.

Teams

Teams will be assigned at the start of the program in the Organizational Behavior and Leadership course in module 1. Teams are purposefully built to pair you with people who are different from you and you will work in your team in various ways in each of your courses. Elective courses will vary and will require specific team formations. These teams will be formed based on each professor’s requirements.
