Program Schedule

16 Months from Start to Finish

The Executive MBA at Smith is an important undertaking that requires a significant investment of time. Smith has designed a schedule that makes it possible to earn your MBA degree while balancing your personal and professional responsibilities.

By scheduling classes all day Friday and Saturday morning of every other week, Smith gives you 12 days between class weekends to organize your business travel or family plans. Saturday afternoons on class weekends are available for activities such as working on group assignments, summarizing class discussions, and preparing for presentations. These afternoons also provide an excellent opportunity for tutorials and consultations with faculty.

Balanced Workload

The Smith Executive MBA schedule typically requires a commitment of 25 hours each week, including class times. Exams, projects, and assignments are divided evenly throughout the year so that you can develop a regular work pattern. The schedule allows for some free time in December and August, and time in late September/early October for travel associated with the Global Business Project.

Note: this is not the official schedule and should be used as a guide only. All dates are subject to change.
