This design divides the MBA program into modules of 8 weeks each, with five modules offered each year. The modular scheduling allows qualified, full-time students to complete the MBA program in a single year at a substantial tuition savings. Part-time students take advantage of our modular scheduling to complete the program over two years (or more, depending upon available time).

Courses are offered in the evening from 5:30 to 9 p.m., and a couple of special workshops take a full Saturday. Class schedules are provided in advance, allowing time to coordinate work, family and academic demands.
