The Extended Professional (ExP) MBA evening program is an extended format to allow those who want the option of completing the program in three years (or up to five years) instead of the traditional two years. The curriculum and faculty are still the same - you just now have the flexibility in completing the program! 

Convenience and flexibility are so important to our students so the program offers these key benefits (after completion of the first semester):

  • One night of class per week after the first core semester (instead of two)
  • Spread the financial cost over a total of six + semesters (instead of four semesters)
  • Increase corporate sponsorship opportunities over four calendar years (instead of currently three calendar years)

The Extended Professional (ExP) MBA evening program allows you to complete the same curricular requirements (a minimum of 54 credit hours) over three to five academic years. While there are some basic enrollment requirements for each semester, this academic structure allows you full control and flexibility to align your pace of completion with your lifestyle preference and work situation. 

For students entering the program in fall 2016, the tuition is $98,500 and is billed on a prorated per credit hour basis each semester.* 

Regardless of the program, a non-refundable enrollment deposit of $2000** is due upon acceptance and will be applied toward your first semester bill. 

*The per credit hour billing amount is prorated based on the total program tuition divided by the total minimum number of credit hours required to complete the degree. The prorated amount is then multiplied by the total number of credit hours you are enrolled in for that semester. 

** The $2000 non-refundable deposit is due upon acceptance into the program and serves as a guarantee of enrollment into the year for which you are accepted. Failure to enroll in that year results in forfeiture of the deposit and will require reapplication to the program.
