Courses and Curriculum

Online One-Year


September 2021 Cohort

Program begins: September 9, 2021 (Fall Start)

MBA Candidates pursuing our one year accelerated degree formats must successfully complete the MBA Foundations Review course prior to enrollment. Developed and administered by faculty, the Foundations Review course is designed to reacquaint you with core business concepts, get you thinking about them in an academic setting again, and re-acclimate you to what it’s like to be back in school before we set you off on your MBA journey.

Comprised of five modules, the course will provide students with videos and content related to the core disciplines as well as series of quizzes to assess comprehension. At the conclusion of the videos and content, students will be required to complete a Readiness Assessment Exam, whereby performance will be graded to permit continued pursuit of an accelerated MBA degree.

The Foundations Review course site will open approximately six weeks before Orientation and classes begin, providing students with ample time to navigate these modules and devote concentrated efforts to their academic performance. Our data tells us that on average students can spend upwards of 20+ hours in the course site and another two hours to complete the Readiness Exam. It is imperative to devote the time required to the site and course to be successful.

Students who are unable to achieve satisfactory marks in the Foundations Review course will not be permitted to continue within a one year accelerated format. Please be advised, that once students begin the Foundations Review course and retrieve the course videos and materials, you are responsible for tuition and fees associated with the course.
