The 36-credit hour MBA in Leadership requires completion of core courses (18 credit hours), Jesuit value core courses (3 credit hours), leadershipspecific course requirements (12 credit hours) and a capstone research/project course (3 credit hours). Course offerings are scheduled over two consecutive eight-week sessions each fall, spring and summer. The program can be completed within one year on a full-time basis. Students seeking part-time enrollment would complete in a longer period of time dependent on how many classes they wish to take in each semester.
Prerequisite courses may be required (these are not part of the 36 hours). Students who have graduated from the Madden School of Business are automatically waived from prerequisite coursework. Students with business degrees from other institutions are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Prerequisites include STA 501, ACT 501, MIS 501 and ECO 501.
