Curriculum and Sample Schedule

The 23-month Saturday MBA is a general MBA, where, due to the cohort nature of the program, all students take all classes at the same time (see sample schedule below.) There is a three-day, mandatory orientation prior to the start of the program; new cohorts begin every July. The program includes an international experience at the end of the program that counts as one of the Advanced Study classes.

See the university catalog for class descriptions.

First year core classes: Accounting 500, Management 500, Marketing 500, Finance 501.

Second year core classes: I S 601, I S 602, HRM 652, ACCT 610, MGMT 657, MKTG 661, FIN 600.

Advanced study classes: These four classes will be taken in different disciplines.

GBA 699: Integrated Analyses. This is the culminating experience of the program.
