Curriculum and Sample Schedule

The 13-month Daytime Accelerated MBA is a general MBA, where, due to the cohort nature of the program, all students take all classes at the same time (see sample schedule below.) There is a three-day, mandatory orientation prior to the start of the program; new cohorts begin every July. The program includes an international experience between the fourth and fifth quarter that counts as one of the Advanced Study classes.

See the university catalog for class descriptions.

First year core classes: Accounting 500, Management 500, Marketing 500, Finance 501. Some of these classes may be waived. Contact the program manager for details.

Second year core classes: I S 601, I S 602, HRM 652, ACCT 610, MGMT 657, MKTG 661, FIN 600.

Advanced study classes: These four classes will be taken in different disciplines.

GBA 699: Integrated Analyses. This is the culminating experience of the program.

Three 500-level courses are taught as hybrid courses in this program (MKTG 500, FIN 500, ACCT 500.)

Note: This is a sample schedule, actual dates will vary slightly.
