Students who do not meet the waiver criteria may complete the program in less than two years.
All MBA students have the opportunity to engage in service learning, faculty-led research, internship, study abroad, and/or a Shared Live Client Experience (SLiCE) real-world consulting project. These experiences enable our students to develop the critical skills to analyze modern business problems and devise complex solutions, think strategically, and manage all aspects of the modern business enterprise.
Our professors, alumni network, and corporate partnerships offer the knowledge, practical experience, personal connections, and placement opportunities that will propel you to career success.
