MBA Program Structure
The MBA Program comes to life in an intentionally close-knit, personal setting. Class sizes are kept small to maximize personal attention between professors and students.
The MBA Program is designed with the working professional in mind, so classes are held in the evening at our centrally located Mission Valley Regional Center. The flexibility of the program allows students to attend part-time (3 units per semester) or full-time (6 units per semester). Based on full-time attendance, the program can be completed in two years if 6 units are taken per semester, 3 semesters per year.
42 Units are required to complete the program:
7 Required Core Courses (21 Units)
5 Electives (15 Units)
1 Seminar Capstone (3 Units)
1 Thesis Project (3 Units)
