Weekday Evenings

For students who prefer taking their classes during the week, they can choose between a Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday class schedule. Weekday evening students will meet in person for two consecutive weeks followed by a distance learning week on rotation throughout each 12 week module. Students on a weekday evening schedule will typically have a 70% in-person and 30% online/distance learning mix.

  • Monday and Wednesday (*M/W) evenings from 6–9 p.m.
  • Tuesday and Thursday (*T/Th) evenings from 6–9 p.m.

*NEW* Saturday Hybrid Schedule

Students who prefer to take classes on the weekend can choose the new Saturday Hybrid Schedule which is launching in fall (September) 2024. Over a 12 week module, Saturday students will spend 4 Saturdays on campus in Atlanta, 3 Saturdays in an online synchronous learning environment, with the remainder executed through distance learning. Students on a Saturday schedule will typically have a 50% in-person and 50% online/distance learning mix.

  • Saturdays (*S) from 9 a.m.–4 p.m. (with a lunch break from 12–1 p.m.)


  • The Professional MBA program can be completed in 17, 20, or 23 months.
  • All students take 10 required core courses and six electives to complete their degree.
  • Students can pursue certificates in Workforce Diversity, Leading Change and/or a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt.
  • Students can also choose to pursue concentrations in Digital Business & Technology, Finance/Accounting, Global Business, Innovation/Entrepreneurship, Leadership/Human Resources Management, Marketing, Operations/Supply Chain Management, or Real Estate.
  • Students will work in teams throughout the Professional MBA Program. Working in teams requires students to work with people with different educational and professional backgrounds, while also giving them the assurance that they have a support system in place to execute team based homework assignments, team projects, and other tasks in each course.
