The Notre Dame MBA

one-year mba

Students who have taken statistics and financial accounting from an accredited university where English is the primary language, may apply for the Notre Dame One-Year MBA program. Enrollment is not encouraged for those who are seeking a drastic or significant career change. Pioneered by Notre Dame in 1982, the program enables students to begin study in May and graduate the following May. During the 10-week summer semester, students attend intensive sessions in the core disciplines explored during the first year of the Two-Year Program. After the summer session, students join the second year of the Two-Year Program.

The curriculum provides a balanced mastery of all functional areas of business. Further, students are exposed to the complexities of global business through a series of engagements with leaders worldwide. Immersions in Asia, Latin America and other locations provide opportunities to experience other cultures first-hand. Signature lecture series, such as Ten Years Hence, bring in internationally renowned experts to discuss some of the most vital trends and issues facing the current age.

During Interterm Intensive, our MBA students analyze, investigate and offer solutions for real-life problems presented by executives from large global organizations, including Adidas, Boeing, GE, Hewlett-Packard, McDonald's, Nestle, OfficeMax, Pace Global Energy Services, Starbucks and  Walgreens.

Ranked 20th among U.S. business schools by Bloomberg Businessweek, and 27th in the US New business schools survey, the Notre Dame MBA’s program size creates a tight-knit community of learners.

The Notre Dame MBA graduate becomes part of the most extensive network of alumni clubs in higher education, with more than 120,000 members in 281 chapters – 59 of which are international. Long after graduation, Mendoza alumni turn to each other for career counseling, professional networking and trusted friendships.
