Students in the three-semester full-time campus program also complete a three-month internship and an international experience and may complete an MBA degree in one additional semester. For working professionals, the Professional program can be completed in four or six semesters. It is delivered using a blend of live, technology enhanced delivery and online instruction.

Students are expected to be admitted to the program as matriculated students before taking coursework leading to the degree.
