Northeastern’s full-time MBA program is a 60-credit program that can be completed in 24 months of full-time study. In addition to building a strong foundation of business knowledge, students gain practical experience by participating in a six-month corporate residency, specializing in a career track, and completing a business plan project for a corporate partner.

In the first year, students take MBA foundation courses and participate in a career management course that helps prepare for a corporate residency. Students fulfill a globalization requirement during the first year through the school’s International Field Study program, a field-based experience overseas.

From June through December, students can participate in a six-month, paid corporate residency at a leading company. Upon return from corporate residency, students then focus their academic work in one of three chosen career tracks: Finance, Marketing, or Operations and Supply Chain Management. The curriculum in the second year also includes a Business Plan Project where teams of students deliver business plans for Northeastern’s corporate partners.
