The full-time Cox MBA is a twenty-two month, 61-credit program. The school’s modular curriculum consists of eight-week courses. The first year focuses on a wide body of knowledge included in the General Business Concentration, such as Accounting, Economics, Statistics, Finance, Marketing, and team interaction skills. During the summer term before second year, students participate in a one credit internship.

All MBA students are initially enrolled in the General Business concentration, but can choose up to two concentrations from a menu of eight. Or students can remain in the General Business concentration to give them the most flexibility for course scheduling.

Cox has not published in its employment report its top employers, preferring to list all of the firms that hired the school’s graduates.
