Earn an MBA on your schedule

With the flexible curriculum of the GLOBIS Part-time MBA, you can take classes on-campus, online, or a combination of both. You decide the schedule for each three-month term, with classes held on weeknights and weekends.

Students typically start by building a solid business foundation with fundamental courses, later specializing in areas specifically aligned with their interests and goals.

At the end of your studies, you have the opportunity to participate in a research project, build your own venture business plan, or work directly with one of GLOBIS’ corporate partners.

With our latest Technovate courses, you can gain knowledge about the many technological disruptions in today’s business world, preparing you for leadership throughout the 21st Century.

In order to graduate within two years, you will need to earn 36 credits (approximately 24 courses). This requires an average of three courses per term (each course consists of six bi-weekly classes). For even more flexibility, get a head-start with the Pre-MBA (make this a link), or extend the program up to five years to go at your pace.
