The Accelerated MBA program is a one-year, cohort-based program, meaning students take a predetermined sequence of evening courses—including a mix of classroom and hybrid formats—to earn the required 36 credit hours.
“The accelerated program is highly interactive. Classes are taken by a cohort of students in sequential order and they really get to know each other. These students develop strong professional ties, and enhance their critical thinking and problem solving skills.”

Students take four classes in both the fall and spring semesters, and four classes over two, six-week summer sessions. Commitment to the structure of the program is essential for its timely completion.
Applicants for the Accelerated MBA program, in addition to the regular requirements for admission, must have an undergraduate degree and have fulfilled certain foundation prerequisites prior to starting the program.
