The Whitman School MBA program's curriculum is founded on building strong analytical and decision makings skills, a high degree of flexibility in tailoring a program and specialization that is right for you, and practical theory through experiential learning and real-world applications. Our full-time MBA is a 54-credit hour program, with 36 core course credits and 18 elective credits completed over a span of two years.
Real World Experiences
Full-time MBA students complete 6 credits of experiential learning through at least two distinct experiences.
You can complete your requirements in several ways, including internships for independent study credit or a course-based experience offered as an elective in your concentration.
These opportunities allow you to gain experience in your field and, for our international students, they give you exposure to American business practices. These opportunities are in addition to the applied assignments and cases you will complete as part of your coursework. Whitman’s close community connections and broad alumni base offer a number of opportunities for experiential learning.
