The Online MBA is built to be customized, so you can shape it to meet your needs and career goals. You can:

  • Business Analytics (in person)
  • Real Estate and the Built Environment (in person)
  • Accounting (in person)
  • Customized (online and/or in person)

Choose your immersions

During the program you’ll take part in two immersions, where you’ll connect with your online peers and faculty in person at a U.S. or international location. You’ll visit local businesses and industry sites, collaborate on real-world business problems with your classmates, and build your network. You can select the locations and topics based on what best matches your interests.*

*Immersions may require additional fees.


Choose your timeframe

Each quarter, you can choose the number of courses you want to take.

If you’re anticipating a busy quarter outside of school, take one class. If you want to immerse yourself and finish quickly, you can take up to four classes to operate as a full-time student.

“My immersion experience was unlike anything I have experienced from a school program before. I had the ability to network with other students in my cohort, challenge myself to think about a current opportunity in my company and then present that idea to a group of people who offered valuable feedback.”
