Program Overview / Program of Study

MBA Courses

The MBA program consists of 30 semester hours of coursework: eight core and two elective courses. Meredith’s MBA is a part-time, evening program designed for working professionals. For some students, additional foundations courses (three to 12 credit hours) may be required, depending on transcript review.

The typical pace for those with a full-time career is two courses per semester, although students have the option to move at a one-course pace when desired, to accommodate changing professional and personal demands.  An accelerated option is also available. 

For those with undergraduate degrees in business or closely related fields, the 30-hour MBA program can typically be completed in only five or six semesters, approximately two years. For students with undergraduate backgrounds from other disciplines, the timeline is extended by the number of Foundations courses required, as determined by transcript review.
