The Gatton MBA: What You Need To Know
The University of Kentucky Gatton College of Business and Economics has developed a cross-disciplinary and immersive full-time one-year MBA program that fosters nimble and competent business professionals.
Gatton has designed its one-year MBA for business and non-business majors. The program’s curriculum includes classes in marketing management and finance, as well as technical business courses in quantitative analysis, global and marketing management, operations management, and data analysis. The one-year track includes 39 credits of core courses and 12 elective credits.
Last year Gatton introduced the Entrepreneurship and New Venture Creation concentration as an option for those looking to embark on individual business ventures. Students create and perform a business pitch and learn how to fund, scale, and manage a business.
A hallmark feature of the Gatton one-year MBA is a built-in 32-week internship program. Project Connect links students with organizations looking for local talent to work on important projects. While in the program, students address issues and form strategies, build professional networks, and receive reliable feedback, research, and recommendations.
Gatton’s partnership with the University of Kentucky’s Colleges of Engineering, Law, Medicine, Pharmacy, and Arts & Sciences has engendered an assortment of dual-degree options. These include Engineering/MBA, JD/MBA, MD/MBA, PharmD/MBA, and STEM/MBA.
