MBA Curriculum

Program Format

We deliver our courses through a blended online approach featuring live, interactive, streamed classes where students and faculty interact with each other in real time along with the use of Blackboard for assignments, offline professor interaction, exams, and participation in discussion threads and projects. Live classes run from 6 to 9:30 p.m. EST, Monday through Thursday, but Flexschedule allows you to participate on your own schedule, 24/7.
