Degrees

  • Albers offers MBA degrees for each stage of your professional life. Each program has its own unique characteristics designed to educate its participants in the most effective way.

    For instance, the Bridge MBA program for early career students is a full time, cohort (lockstep) program with classes during the day.

    In contrast, the Professional MBA program is part-time with classes in the evening and has a flexible schedule for working professionals.

    The Executive MBA programs (Leadership Executive MBA and Health Leadership Executive MBA) are cohort programs that offer schedules designed to afford busy professionals the opportunity to learn in an environment that does not require them to sacrifice their professional and personal lifestyles in order to take the next step in their careers.

    Math and Business Communications Proficiency

    All graduate students in the degree programs of the Albers School of Business and Economics must establish their proficiency in basic mathematics (college algebra and introductory calculus) and business communications. All students must have access to a computer with a modem, wireless connectivity, or the flexibility to use campus computer labs.

    Math proficiency can be established by previous credit course work in calculus with a grade of "B" (3.00) or higher, or the non-credit course offered by Albers.

    Communications proficiency can be established by previous credit course work in business communications with a grade of "B" (3.00) or higher, or successful completion of the non-credit business communications course offered by the Albers School, or by adequate performance in both the Verbal section and the Essay Writing section of the GMAT exam.

    Students are encouraged to complete these proficiency requirements prior to starting their graduate degree program. The math proficiency requirement must be completed by the end of the first year in each program. The communications proficiency must be completed by the end of the first quarter in each program.
