Students from Diverse Backgrounds

Designed as a cohort program, you and your classmates will progress through the core curriculum together, allowing you to create meaningful relationships and effective study teams with your peers.

Co-Hort Program Design
Our Professional MBA Program is designed as a cohort program. You and your classmates will progress through the core curriculum together, allowing you to create meaningful relationships and effective study teams with your peers. The sequence is outlined below.


Choose Your Program Length – 24, 28 or 33 Months
You can adjust the length of time needed to complete the program by how you schedule your elective courses. You can choose to consistently take six semester hours each fall, spring and summer semesters to graduate in 33 months. Or you can choose to complete the program in 24 or 28 months by taking electives in the Winter and Spring Intersession semesters, and/or by taking additional electives during a regular semester.

Typically, about 40% of our Professional MBA students complete the program in 24 months, about 40% in 28 months and 20% in 33 months. Completing the program in 24 months requires some diligence in planning and will reduce your elective choices.
