Business is a human enterprise, with success dependent on people being able to collaborate, grow, create, innovate and lead. The MBA program produces business leaders who are equally adept at navigating the technical and the people aspects of business. In an intellectually stimulating and supportive environment, we foster thoughtful, independent and responsible leaders. The MBA program offers students a technically sound business foundation along with experiential learning, helping maximize skill development and individual potential. Employers recognize the graduates for their forward-looking managerial skillset coupled with a ‘can do’ attitude. The professionalism and situational readiness emphasized in the program paves the way for a seamless transition from the world of Learn by Doing—Cal Poly’s signature teaching philosophy—to the world of doing business. The MBA degree requires 60 units, which can be completed at an accelerated pace in 10-months or spread out over multiple years. Once admitted, students have the option of selecting a plan of study that best suits them. Courses are offered face-to-face during daytime hours typically on Monday through Thursday. Fridays are reserved for team projects, guest speakers, career services and other extracurricular pursuits.
