The four-semester, 48-credit program at the Hough Graduate School is designed for individuals with diverse academic and professional backgrounds. Each semester is split into two eight-week modules, allowing seven weeks of class work and one week of exams. During the first year, students enroll in twelve core business classes that provide a solid foundation of functional business skills.
During the second year, students take elective courses and have the opportunity to focus their studies in one or more specific business disciplines. Students may choose to focus their studies from among one hundred elective courses in one or more of sixteen concentrations and six certificate programs. To earn a concentration, students must complete a minimum of four courses within a particular field.
