How Long Will It Take Me to Complete My Degree?

The amount of time it takes to complete your MBA varies depending on the number of credits initially waived, amount of courses taken each semester, and whether you pursue full-time or part-time study. For example, a student who has had all foundation courses waived and takes 12 credits per semester can complete their MBA in as little as one year (including summer).

Our flexible program puts you in control of your course load, allowing you to determine the pace that best enables you to succeed.

How are courses delivered?

The Monmouth MBA program is designed to work with you and your busy schedule. We are committed to helping students reach their professional goals at their own pace, whether that be through full-time or part-time study. Classes are typically scheduled in the evening, allowing students that work full time the opportunity to continue to grow professionally in and out of the classroom. Courses are mainly delivered in a traditional or hybrid format and are suited for students who prefer in-person instruction.
