The Harbert MBA: What You Need To Know
The full-time enrollment of Auburn’s Harbert College of Business makes for an amazingly small and intimate MBA experience of just 78 students. But in addition to the on-campus MBA, there’s a video-based Distance MBA, an Executive MBA, and a Physicians Executive MBA. The school also has more than 3,000 business undergraduates.
The full-time program is a lock-step 17-month experience with fall entry only. The core courses are pretty much what you would find in any MBA program: financial, quantitative and strategic analysis; organizational leadership & change, marketing, operations, and info systems. And then there’s a menu of electives in finance, MIS, marketing, production/operations, sports management, and supply chain/logistics. There’s also an international studies trip and leadership development.
Most MBA students, of course, hold full-time jobs during the day and come to school at night for the affordable tuition. Given the low cost of the program, Auburn offers great value for the money which is why Forbes magazine has recognized the MBA program for its return on investment.
