Full-­time M.B.A. Degree Requirements

The curriculum for the one-­year intensive Full-­Time M.B.A. program begins in August when students start classes on the Durham campus following an orientation program. Students continue together as a cohort through the academic year. The 48-­credit program is comprised of ten required courses, five electives (or four electives and one internship), a three-day financial residency in NYC, a ten­-day international residency, and culminates with an eight-­week, 3-­credit corporate consulting project.

Students with less than two years of professional work experience are required to complete a 140 hour internship that satisfies one elective course. Students with more than two years of professional work experience are also encouraged to engage in an internship in order to explore new fields or functions.

Core courses focus on developing leadership and managerial skills through informed through informed decision making grounded in rigorous analysis. Students will learn the behavioral and social skills that empower effective leaders in any organization as well as the technical skills necessary to understand complex business processes, manage the development of technology projects, and utilize data for effective decision-­making.

Core courses and electives build an understanding of the business environment. The corporate consulting project (CCP) provides an immediate opportunity to apply this knowledge to the real world of business. The cohort is divided into small teams which are each assigned to a local organization. Each team works closely with the client organization and faculty advisers to solve a real-­life problem for their company. At the end of the CCP, each team presents their results to their organizational sponsors and classmates.
