Suggested Course Load

You can complete your MBA degree at your own pace, making sure you have all the time you need to make the most out of your experience. On average, for every 1 credit hour in which you enroll, you can expect to spend 2-3 hours outside of class studying.

1 course (3 credit hours)   =>   6-9 hours of study time per week
