The flexibility of the program as well as the real life, real business experience are great elements of the program. You can complete the program at your own pace, not to exceed five years. Professors present concepts and ideas that are current and are flexible with students as they are faced with work and life demands. The curriculum and the school itself are top notch; it's not just any other MBA program. I am very happy to have returned to my alma mater to receive my MBA degree.
