Campus MBA Program
The Campus MBA Program is the flagship offering of the College of Management. Both full-time and part-time students attend the program and represent an attractive blend of professional responsibilities, ranging from senior managers to recent undergraduates just beginning their professional careers. Students come from both domestic and international backgrounds with varying ages, career and life experiences. These diversities, also reflected in our faculty, provide for an enriched learning experience, both within and beyond the classroom, and reflect the increasingly globalized world in which we live.
The Campus MBA program is a 48-credit course of study. Students with appropriate undergraduate coursework may qualify for a reduction to a 36-45 credit program. Convenient evening classes offer great flexibility for students to pursue their degree at their own pace, on either a full-time or part-time basis. Two class sessions are offered each evening, Monday through Thursday: the first from 6:40 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and the second from 8:40 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.
