The Full-time Cohort MBA Program fulfills the business world’s demand for MBA graduates with the ability to understand and manage complex business processes.  Students who choose this program option will take all of their foundation and core classes in a full-time, lock step format during the first three terms of the program. Upon completion of the prerequisite core courses, students may begin taking their concentration classes at their own pace.  Students in the Full-time Cohort MBA Program may choose to specialize in any of the generally available MBA concentrations offered by the Kellstadt Graduate School of Business. Admission is for fall quarter only. 

Core Course Requirements (48 Credit Hours)

Concentrations and Electives

In addition to the required core courses, students have six electives (24 credit hours) they can use to take courses in a specific area of interest.  These electives are typically used by students to select one or more concentrations from over 30 concentrations available that offer the knowledge, skills, and abilities that best fit the student’s educational needs and interests. 

While many students choose to have a specific area of concentration, those who would like more flexibility in selecting courses may choose the general business concentration instead.  With this option, the student is free to choose all of their elective courses from several different areas of study within the Kellstadt Graduate School of Business. 

If a student does not indicate a specific concentration of interest in the application for admission the student will be assigned to the general business concentration. 

Core courses may be waived, i.e., excused without additional course work required, if the student has previously completed equivalent course work with a grade of C or better.  Professional experience may not be considered in meeting academic requirements.  The interpretation, evaluation and final decision of course waivers is the prerogative of the Kellstadt Graduate School of Business.
