Weekend MBA Schedule
You will attend classes on all day Friday and Saturday every three weeks, plus Sunday every two months. On-campus residencies allow you to focus on coursework without distractions and build strong connections with classmates that will last your entire career. Between sessions, you will have more flexibility for family and business travel.
> 20-month calendar of class sessions
Intensive immersion week
The Class of 2017 begins with a residential immersion week in February 2016. You will begin core course classes and get to know your study team. Your partner is invited Friday evening through Saturday for special partner activities and social events.
Convenient ongoing classes
Most classes are held Friday and Saturday, every three weeks, with an occasional Sunday. Friday classes start at 9:30 a.m., so most students fly or drive in Friday morning. Saturday classes end at 4 p.m., so you will travel home that evening. In addition to classes, most students spend 12 to 20 hours a week in individual study or team meetings.
Core courses are arranged so that exams are staggered, which makes managing study time easier. During the final eight months, you will attend elective courses. You may choose weekend electives or join Evening MBA students for electives during the week. You also may choose global immersions lasting 10 to 14 days.
