Individual development. Personal achievement. Critical Thinking Skills. Teamwork. Leadership. Social responsibility. What will be the defining qualities of your professional life? Our Professional Evening track is designed for working professionals looking to succeed in a wide variety of professional contexts: as an individual, a team player, an innovator and problem solver, and a leader within your organization. Anchored by a series of rigorous foundation courses in economics, finance, marketing, management, accounting, and information systems, our curriculum will enhance your skills, perspective and contribution in the business marketplace. One of the advantages of this track is having students bring to class real-world issues that they are working on and discussing these issues among each other. One faculty member described the classroom environment as "the students teaching the students." You will certainly be enriched by being in the classroom with working professionals or students in other professional programs on campus with diverse backgrounds.
Every semester we see a wide range of professionals come to our Professional Evening MBA program eager to learn cutting edge managerial knowledge, eager to share their experiences, and eager to apply what we discuss in class. This truly is an invigorating and empowering environment for everyone.

Strategy & Leadership
The Professional Evening MBA track recognizes that working professionals have opportunities to apply what they learn in the workplace on a daily basis. The curriculum reflecting that contribution is developed around twelve core courses. Students can complete the program in as little as two years by completing three courses per semester. However, most of our evening students take two courses a semester requiring three years to complete their degree.
