100% Online Courses

The entire MBA and the Certificate programs are offered online. Each of our programs are open both to in-state and out-of-state students. Our online courses are offered over seven weeks. Five terms are offered in each academic year (Fall 1, Fall 2, Spring 1, Spring 2, and Summer). Each seven-week term course is a full three-credit graduate course. Most part-time students take only one course per seven-week term. Full-time students take multiple courses per seven-week term. You can vary your load in a given session to suit your work/life balance.

Our online courses are asynchronous, which means that there are weekly deadlines and examination windows, but generally no other set time that you need to log into the course. This means that you can complete your classwork on your weekly schedule--around your work and family commitments. In some cases, professors may assign students into teams, and teams may need to coordinate their work and therefore be available at a certain time.
