Why Pursue a Master's Degree in Business

This full-time, 11-month program features cohort classes to allow students whose previous education has been in non-business fields (such as liberal arts, science and engineering) to obtain graduate level business training as a complement to previous education to help them take the next step in their careers. All admitted students are automatically considered for program scholarships. Approximately 25% of admitted students will receive some financial aid from the program.
