MBA International

We strongly believe in the value of a face-to-face, cohort-based MBA program delivered by UNI MBA faculty members. Many years ago, UNI began offering its MBA program in an intensive executive-style format at locations convenient for international students.

Students complete the ten MBA courses sequentially, learning through a mix of online activities and intensive weekend meetings. A business capstone brings the content together in an application experience in a simulated global business environment. Courses last for 6 weeks with any pre-requisite review materials provided online prior to the start of the course. Business professionals are able to complete their MBA within 24 – 28 months without disrupting their work schedules.
