Evening MBA

Program Overview

The Evening MBA is a self-paced program where students determine the number of classes taken each term. The flexibility of the program is ideal for students who work full time and can only dedicate evenings to an MBA program.  It is also suitable for international students who typically complete the degree in 2 1/2 to 3 years. The great flexibility of the program makes it an unmatched choice for students whose life and career often fluctuate from season to season.

The EMBA program with its numerous specializations prepares you with the quantitative, analytical and strategic skills that you will need to identify strategic market opportunities. Students will work on exciting business problems across disciplines that will prepare them to start their own business as well as succeed in an organization.

Students are required to participate in a two-day orientation at a downtown Long Beach Marriott hotel. The focus of the orientation is to prepare the student to work in teams, master the Harvard case discussion method, and begin the preparation for their career post-graduation. During the orientation, students get to know faculty, fellow students and alumni of the program and begin to work as teams. The orientation is included in the cost of the program.


Students can specialize in the following areas: Finance, Management, Human Resources Management, Information Systems, Marketing, or obtain a general MBA.
