        Curriculum

        The full-time MBA program is a lock-step curriculum model. You will enter as a cohort group during the fall semester and graduate at the conclusion of the following fall semester.

        In this curriculum model, you will take a set of 10 core courses and select 3 elective courses to fulfill your individual interests or the requirements of a specific concentration. This includes an international experience in the spring semester.  

        Additionally, if you have less than two years of full-time work experience, you will also be required to complete a summer internship between the second and third academic semesters.
