Transform Your Career in 16 Months

Our cohort-based program enhances teamwork and collaboration through designed case studies and interactive learning. We offer an array of industry specializations, certificates, summer internships, and dual-degree opportunities so that your educational experience is uniquely tailored to your career goals.


Our 49-hour Full-time MBA program is designed in a modular format, with each semester being broken into two 8-week modules. The modular format minimizes overlap and maximizes depth of content, while also allowing students to start taking electives as early as the first semester, giving them a boost in their ability to outperform other MBA candidates in the competitive internship environment. 

The Core:

Core classes cover fundamental business knowledge and essential managerial competencies with an emphasis on the global business perspective. Topics include accounting, marketing, financial analysis, business strategy, human resources, operations management, and data analytics.

Summer Internship

Internships are an integral part of the MBA experience. The internship search is essentially a trial run for your full-time employment search in your second year. During first year of your MBA, expect to dedicate time researching industries and companies, building your professional networks, polishing your résumé, and honing your interview skills.
