Business, Accelerated MBA Program, One year


One-year Accelerated MBA Program


The Accelerated MBA program enables students to complete the MBA degree within a calendar year by attending classes on Saturdays and alternating Friday evenings. To qualify for admission, applicants must take the GMAT examination. A GRE score is also acceptable. Admission is based on a combination of the GMAT score and the undergraduate GPA.

Applicants to the Accelerated MBA program must be able to waive all Level I and Level II course requirements. This program is ideal for students with a recent bachelor’s degree in business, or those candidates who have completed the necessary first-year MBA prerequisites. Participants can begin the program at one of two start dates each year. Students progress as a cohort group to the completion of their degree and the program includes an International Study Tour experience, custom textbooks, parking, and meals during class times. Accelerated MBA programs begin in January and end in December, or begin in August and end in July of the following year. Class sizes are limited. The application deadline for the January program is December 15, and August 15, for the August program.
