Program structure

The Online MBA is offered in conjunction with the Evening-Weekend MBA program classes given on campus. The degree requirements for the 58-credit MBA program can be fulfilled in six semesters, including two summers as extensions of the spring semesters. Students, who wish to join the on-campus MBA with the daytime class schedule, may do so at the beginning of any semester after meeting admissions requirements.

All students begin their first semester with:

  • A four-week, 2-credit “Science and Technology of Consciousness (STC),” a foundational course in Consciousness-Based Education that explores deep principles for the holistic development of body, mind, and consciousness.
  • Each of the subsequent semesters begins with a two-week, 1-credit “Forest Academy” in which the faculty lead students in a deeper reflection on business based on the knowledge taught in the STC course.

Focus on sustainable business

The theme for each semester is based on one of the main business functions: marketing, accounting, operations, etc. The semester begins with an introductory course on that theme and ends with a course on sustainable business in the context of that theme.

Already have a business degree?

If you have an undergraduate degree with a major in business, you may receive waiver credit for any of the seven foundation areas in which you received a grade of B or higher: Marketing, Accounting, Financial Management, Business Law and Ethics, Operations Management, Human Resource Management, and Management Information Systems. Maximum of 18 credits may be waived.
