  • Experience with applied quantitative and behavioral tools of business analysis and decision-making.

  • The ability to think critically and creatively within a global business context.

  • A heightened sense of ethical considerations in decision-making within the business world.

  • Improved communication and decision-making skills through utilization of information technology.

Program Flexibility
MbaWe are aware that acquiring an MBA degree requires a major commitment of time and effort on the student's part. Given the great value attached to the MBA degree hard work is to be expected. The MBA degree requires the completion of at least 30 hours of graduate-level coursework for students with undergraduate business degrees. Part-time students with undergraduate business degrees can expect to complete the program within three years. Full-time students may complete the program within two years.

USI's MBA program is specifically designed to meet the unique needs of the working professional. USI provides:

  • in-class and on-line classes to provide maximum flexibility;
  • convenient evening classes for the working professional; classes start at 6 p.m.;
  • a summer course schedule to help expedite progress through the program; and
  • flexible advising and administrative assistance.
