The Southern MBA: FLEXIBILITY
At Southern, we get it. Earning your MBA is a big step, but it’s not the only step in your life. Education. Career. Family. Interests. They form the mosaic of your life. That’s why we offer both the Traditional Southern MBA and the Accelerated Southern MBA. Which makes the most sense for you? YOU decide…
The Traditional Southern MBA comprises 39 to 51 credits, depending on your undergraduate degree. Guidelines apply, but almost any of the eight first-year courses can be waived, again, depending upon your undergraduate degree.
The Traditional Southern MBA can be completed on a full-time or part-time basis, thus offering the flexibility many full-time professionals find desirable. In further consideration of your career, all courses are offered in the evening or on Saturdays.
The Accelerated Southern MBA offers a hybrid, full-time, 18-month program. Candidates seeking a certain specialization can integrate specialization courses and still complete the program in 18 months. Courses are in the hybrid format, part online and part in the classroom on Saturdays.
There are nine sessions, each lasting eight weeks with a one-week break in between sessions. Classes are normally held on Saturdays to accommodate the demands of a full-time professional’s career, offering the candidate the flexibility to pursue their MBA with minimal disruption. Candidates participate in a “Cohort” format, which means you start and finish the program with the same group of MBA candidates.
