Business Administration: Full-Time (M.B.A.)

https://paulcollege.unh.edu/academics/graduate-programs/mba/full-time-mba

Full-­time M.B.A.

The new and innovative curriculum was designed specifically to accelerate a student's progress through this highly-­ranked AACSB­ accredited M.B.A. program. The program does this by integrating courses, identifying key skills and concepts necessary for success in business, and then helping students master these skills and concepts through class discussions, cases, guest lectures, and projects. Throughout the program, students will be exposed to the knowledge that builds insight into complex organizations.

The program includes a New York residency, a corporate consulting project, and an international residency.

Students finish their coursework either in late May or in early July, dependent upon whether they elect to take courses in Term 5, and have a June or September graduation date respectively.

Registration Policies

M.B.A. courses are primarily intended for matriculated students who have been admitted to the M.B.A. program. Other degree­ seeking students and M.B.A. alumni may request permission to register for courses on a space­-available basis.

Audit: Required M.B.A. core courses cannot accommodate auditors. Other degree-­seeking students and M.B.A. alumni may request permission from the instructor to audit M.B.A. electives.

Full-­time M.B.A. Degree Requirements

The curriculum for the one-­year intensive Full-­Time M.B.A. program begins in mid-August when students start classes on the Durham campus after an orientation program. Students continue together as a cohort through the academic year. The 48-­credit program is comprised of eleven required courses, three electives, a ten­-day international residency, and culminates with an eight-­week, 6-­credit corporate consulting project. Electives can be taken in such areas as marketing, finance, entrepreneurship, innovation, leadership, and general management.

Students with less than two years of professional work experience must complete a 140 hour internship that satisfies one elective course.

Core courses will focus on the functional areas of business, how they interact, how they contribute to the goals and objectives of the organization, and how they can be managed effectively. Students will learn the behavioral and social skills that empower effective leaders in any organization as well as the technical skills necessary to understand complex business processes, manage the development of technology projects, and utilize data for effective decision-­making.

The Full-Time M.B.A. curriculum is complete at the end of Term 4 with a total of 48 credits. Students have the option of taking courses in Term 5 to complete a specialization or for their own interest. These courses are offered at the continuing education cost.

Core courses and electives build an understanding of the business environment. The corporate consulting project (CCP) provides a first-­rate opportunity to apply this knowledge to the real world of business. The cohort is divided into small teams which are each assigned to an local company such as Fidelity Investments and Liberty Mutual Life Insurance. Each team work closely with the host company and faculty advisers to solve a real-­life problem for their company. At the end of the CCP, each team presents their results to their company sponsors and classmates.
