The Flex MBA also is taught by the same faculty, follows the same core MBA courses, and confers the same degree as the Full-time MBA Program. It adds greater flexibility in the duration of the degree (24-60 months), delivery of courses (more Intensive Learning Experiences), and innovations in using technology (hybrid and online electives).

All MBA students participate in a Global Business Experience (GBE) course. By pairing student teams with global companies to consult on real world issues, students are empowered to more fully understand how business is conducted around the world. Projects cover a variety of functional business areas such as market entry, market development, communications, innovation strategy, competitive strategy, and global growth strategy. As part of the course, students have the opportunity to travel abroad for client presentations. Flex MBA students have traveled to places such as Singapore, Argentina, Italy, and beyond.
