Students have described Eli Broad’s full-time MBA program as a home away from home. Small class sizes, with a heavy emphasis on team-based work in the curriculum, creates strong relationships between faculty and students. In a span of 21 months, the Broad MBA covers three components: a 28-credit core curriculum in foundational learning, a 15-credit concentration to build subject-matter expertise, and 15 credits of electives to help students maximize their knowledge in other business areas.

The Broad full-time MBA Program combines a theory-based curriculum with soft skills that are used for effective leadership. The program allows students to select a concentration and to craft their own plan of study with elective courses that complement the concentration area. The concentrations offered are Finance, Human Resource Management, Marketing, and Supply Chain Management.
