MBA Course Schedule


MBA Course Schedule

MBA classes are now also being held at the Regional Learning Alliance (RLA) in Cranberry Township!

MBA courses are offered in five, nine-week terms each calendar year. Classes are offered Monday through Thursday evenings, from 6 - 10 p.m. The goal of this format is to allow working adults an opportunity to attend class one night each week and complete the 36-hour General MBA program in under two-and-a-half years. Students who begin in Term 4 can complete the General MBA in as little as 6 terms. Concentrations (Finance, Operations, and Marketing) require additional time. For the typical working professional, one class per term is a more reasonable expectation in the completion of our General MBA within a two-and-a-half year time period.   

A leveling course (Business Law) may be required for students who do not have an undergraduate business degree (BSBA) from an accredited college or university. Students lacking the Common Professional Component of business study (as defined by the ACBSP) will be required to satisfy the component content prior to receiving regular status.

Planning Schedule

The following schedule reflects our intention to offer every course once each calendar year.
