The General Business and Real Estate concentrations consist of 36 credits hours and offers both part-time and full-time options.
Courses are offered in 7-week terms and by taking one course every seven weeks, our part-time programs take two years to complete. Full-time students complete one course every 7 weeks in the summers and two courses every seven weeks during the fall and spring terms, finishing their degrees in 15 months.
On-campus residencies are required for both concentrations. You’ll come to campus for an extended weekend each summer that you are in the MBA program.
Prepare for the rapidly changing nature of today’s business world by developing a broad array of strategic and analytical skills. You’ll be equipped to lead a business, make high-level business decisions and manage people. The general business concentration provides the knowledge necessary to climb the ladder in all types of businesses, from Fortune 500 companies to entrepreneurial organizations to nonprofit entities.
An important economic driver, real estate is an increasingly sophisticated and analytical industry with a real need for an MBA skill set. The real estate concentration equips you with dynamic, practice-oriented skills that give you the capability to tackle the challenges facing tomorrow’s real estate professionals. The real estate concentration prepares you to be a leader in the industry, working in areas such as commercial and corporate real estate, development, investment management and finance.
