Online Curriculum & Concentrations

Online MBA

  • The Online MBA provides the same high quality curriculum as our Main Campus MBA, just with a different delivery mode.  
  • Online courses are certified and internally reviewed to ensure the quality and effectiveness of online teaching strategies.  
  • Class sizes are intentionally kept small (average class size = 25) to maximize student-faculty interaction in an online setting.
  • Online MBA students earn their MBA with a concentration in Interdisciplinary Business. 

The Online MBA program is designed to be completed in two years. Students in the online program take 6 hours per semester (fall, spring, and summer) to complete the 36-hour program in two years.  Flexibility is possible for students who wish to progress at a slower or faster pace.  

Some online courses may require synchronous class meetings. These meetings would take place between 6:00pm and 9:00pm Eastern Standard Time (EST). Students who are unable to join synchronous meetings are required to contact their faculty member for accommodation. Some courses may require exam proctoring at preapproved testing centers. Course instructor will provide additional information.
