The University of Arizona’s Eller College of Management (Eller) offers four MBA programs – the two-year traditional Full-time MBA and three programs targeted to working professionals: Evening, Executive and Online MBA. The programs take 21 months to complete, although the Online program can be completed in as little as 14 months or up to 24 months depending on the course load selected.

The most popular program for working professionals with 7+ years of professional experience at the managerial level is the Executive MBA. It offers seasoned managers flexibility in a hybrid program that leverages the convenience of an online program with the networking advantage of a classroom experience. Students receive a core body of knowledge in a context that maximizes relevance, impact and return on investment. The program consists of eight-week courses delivered in a cohort, lock-step format with in-person classes held one weekend per month (Fridays and Saturdays) on the Eller College campus in downtown Phoenix. The $68,000 investment, paid over 21 months, covers tuition, course materials, accommodations at a 4-star hotel, catered meals, and the ground portion of the Silicon Valley immersive and the international Global Business Experience.

The Online MBA is most attractive to working professionals with demanding schedules requiring significant amounts of travel. The asynchronous 100% online delivery means that you are able to access the material when it fits your schedule from the locale of your choice. The $51,525 program cost is billed as you go and covers the tuition as well as electronic course materials which are delivered to you in each course. There is no need to go in search of books or course materials so you can focus on learning.

All programs begin in August – apply today.
