15-Month MBA Curriculum

Our 15-month MBA program may be completed in four consecutive trimesters consisting of 55 units of coursework and 45 hours of co-curricular activities. Students in this program have sufficient applicable work experience but lack previous relevant course work to qualify for the 12-Month program (minimum three years).

The co-curricular activities are designed to enhance student learning in the areas of communication skills; critical thinking; integration and application; values and ethics; job placement and career development.
