Accelerated Master of Business Administration

The Master of Business Administration (MBA) exists in an accelerated format and may be completed in one year.

Using courses from the MBA, students will complete ten courses over the course of four terms. All but one of the courses will be completed in 5.5 weeks (sometimes called modules). These courses are prescribed in both content and sequence; students will have no choice in the courses taken and no specialties will be offered. Instead of a thesis option, all students will create a digital career portfolio in MT6650 Strategy and Policy.

Students will complete 45 credits in the following sequence:

It is recommended that students who wish to complete the accelerated format version of the program should be at least 25 years of age and should have a CGPA of 3.0. Additional admissions counseling may be recommended as this is a very rigorous, fast paced program.
