Program description

Designed to be completed as a cohort experience in only 18 months, the redesigned Signature MBA program provides you with time for a summer internship and includes an intensive integrated learning capstone experience during your final semester, while providing a path to rejoin the workforce four months earlier than a traditional two-year MBA program. Students will bring significant post-bachelor professional experience and a desire to advance or switch industries or professional field. The program begins in early August with coursework concluding 18 months later with an immersive capstone experience.
