New, Faster Part-Time Curriculum

As of November 2018, the Sellinger School of Business announced revisions to the part-time MBA curriculum in order to create a more streamlined and interdisciplinary program. Changes to the curriculum include a reduction to the time to degree completion, integrated global perspectives, and fewer course requirements with added student-directed options. Students pursuing the MBA with a General Business specialization may complete the program in as few as 39 credits. Students seeking an MBA with one of our other seven specializations can do so in just 42 credits. In addition, up to two course waiver exams (3 credits each) can be taken by admitted students. Waiver exams are offered in Finance, Statistics, and Economics. Those applying to the program as early as spring 2019 will benefit from the curriculum change.

Discover the Sellinger Difference

Students gain a broad business perspective and real-world experience through site visits and seminars with business leaders. Alumni join an elite network of more than 20,000 professionals throughout the region’s leading business, non-profit, and government organizations. Additionally, the Sellinger School of Business was recently named a “Best” Business School by the Princeton Review in its 2019 annual business school rankings.
