The M.B.A program is available either online or in a traditional face-to-face delivery mode. Online sections are offered in 8-week terms (two per long semester), while the face-to-face sections are 16-week, full semester classes. Students are free to choose either format at any time.
Consisting of only 30 semester credit hours, the M.B.A. program can be completed in as few as 12 months for full-time students; part-time students will take longer, depending on the number of classes taken each semester.
Our highly qualified business faculty members have doctoral degrees, and many have significant business experience.

Those students who hold an undergraduate business degree should be prepared to start the MBA curriculum without any foundation courses. Those who hold an undergraduate degree in an area other than business may be required to complete one or more of the following foundation requirements:
- Financial Accounting
- Managerial Accounting
- Fundamentals of Economics
- Understanding Corporate Finance
- Principles of Management
- Principles of Marketing
- Business Math and Statistics
Each of these foundation requirements can be completed by successfully completing the appropriate IVY online modules. The self-paced IVY modules can be found online at the mbapreworks website. Once each module has been completed with a minimum grade of 80, a completion certificate will automatically be sent to the department by IVY.
Some of these foundation requirements may be waived by the MBA Director for those students who can demonstrate successful prior course work in these areas. The foundation requirements for each student are determined on a case-by-case basis. It is generally expected that the student will complete all the necessary foundation requirements before they will be permitted to enroll in an MBA course.
