Which program is right for you?

Not sure which program is right for you? See the chart below for program features at a glance. Also, ask yourself these questions:

  1. How quickly do I want to get the degree?
  2. How much time can I dedicate to my studies?
  3. When can I attend classes?
  4. What is my budget?

Answers to these questions will help you select the best program for your circumstances. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions. 

Note: We ask that students apply to only one program, because the application and admission criteria are the same (except for the work experience requirement for the Saturday MBA.)
