The MBA curriculum is composed of 31.5 credits of required core courses and 22.5 credits of electives, including Intensive Learning Experiences (ILEs). Semesters include 12 weeks of class plus midterm and final exam periods. Half-semesters, or modules, include 6 weeks of class plus a final exam period. 

No more than 12 credits can be earned through ILEs. ILEs are offered for 1.5 or 3 credits in January, March, and July/August. 

Students can take a third class in any module after their first semester to speed up their degree completion. Students can take on-campus electives or ILEs if they can attend all class sessions in person.
