The Notre Dame MBA

Two-year curriculum overview

In the Two-Year MBA program, students attend classes for four semesters and complete 64 credit hours. Classes are offered on a full-time, academic year basis (beginning in the fall semester).

In the first year of the program, students study the core business disciplines. At the end of the first year, students can select from a variety of concentration tracks that will further their interests and future prospects.

Each semester consists of two seven-week modules, which gives students greater flexibility in choosing courses to suit individual interests, plus allows them to layer in additional electives to complement their concentration track selections.

An Interterm Intensive week in every semester allows students to enroll in short courses to deepen or broaden their expertise or, when coupled with break week, enables students to study abroad.

Students are required to complete 64 credit hours.
