Students enrolled in the Part-Time MBA program may take courses at any satellite campus as well as online. The entire core curriculum is offered online every Spring, Summer, and Fall semester. There is no campus residency requirement so you complete your entire program from anywhere in the world.
Students can take as many or as few courses as they wish in any given semester. Core courses, as well as some elective courses, are offered during fall, spring and summer semesters. During the accelerated winter session, only elective courses are offered.
