Program Schedule

A World-Class MBA In Just 12 Months,
While Working At Your Current Job

Smith School of Business recognizes that, having earned an undergraduate degree in business, you have already received academic training in management fundamentals. With this in mind, we have created a schedule that enables you to earn your MBA degree in less time.

Earn Your MBA in One Year

The MBA for Business Graduates is a program that can be completed in 12 months, rather than the two years of a traditional full-time MBA program. Not only does this reduce the time requirement, it also reduces the cost. Furthermore, you can pursue this degree while you continue to work, rather than disrupting your career.

12 Days Between Class Weekends

By scheduling classes all day Sunday and Monday morning of every other week, Smith gives you 12 days off between class weekends to organize your business, travel or personal plans. While Monday classes typically end at 1:00pm EST, there may be times in which an afternoon class session beginning at 2:00pm EST will be scheduled. If there is no Monday afternoon session scheduled, teams are expected to use this time to work on group assignments, summarize class discussions, and prepare for presentations. We confirm the class schedule in advance so you can plan ahead. We understand that you have other obligations and commitments that you can't leave behind.

Balanced Workload

The MBA for Business Graduates schedule typically requires a commitment of approximately 20 hours each week, in addition to class time. Exams, projects, and assignments are divided evenly throughout the year, so that you can develop a regular work pattern.

A Focus that Encourages Mastery

At Smith you take three courses at a time, allowing you adequate time for study and reflection on each subject. This is an in-depth approach supporting mastery of the material.
