There are two options for completing SLU’s business administration master’s program: the evening option is designed for currently employed professionals, and the one-year option is for full-time students.
The one-year MBA is a cohort-based program that begins each summer and spans three terms — summer, fall and spring. Prior work experience is not necessary. The summer session is an accelerated schedule, where the fundamentals of the MBA program are met. The fall session builds on the summer courses and allows students to take electives in the evenings. The spring session has fewer courses allowing more time for internships and a focus on career development. During the final session students also complete the capstone course, a live consulting case where students work in teams, using the skills they have developed during the previous two semesters.
Between the fall and spring semesters, students will study abroad for one week in Hong Kong to gain valuable hands-on international business experience.
The Cook School has tailored the part-time, evening MBA program to accommodate the schedules of working professionals. Courses are offered weekday evenings (Monday through Thursday), generally 6 to 9 p.m. To increase flexibility, you can begin the program in January, May or August.
While most AACSB-accredited schools only allow you to transfer up to six credits if needed, SLU’s agreement with the Jesuit MBA network allows you to transfer more credits to partner Jesuit schools.
Both offer the option to concentrate your elective coursework in emphasis areas that include accounting, economics, finance, management and marketing.
