Full-Time MBA Program

In the full-time MBA program at Lourdes, you will finish your MBA in a single year–three semesters. In our intensive full-time MBA program, you are in class five mornings a week, every weekday. As a full-time MBA student, we know you don’t want to delay your career longer than you have to! All MBA courses are small–there are no 50-student lectures in the Lourdes MBA Program.

We set our students up for success with a consistent course schedule and extensive group, individual, and class activities. The courses within the full-time MBA program encompass different aspects of the business world, both theory and practice. Every MBA candidate will have an international immersion experience: in 2012, the Lourdes MBA candidates visited London, England and worked with the Summer Olympics planning team and in 2013 they traveled to Beijing, China and met with FedEx to Lehman Brown. For the Professional Immersion, each student will build a personalized career experience that will utilize and draw upon the classroom lectures and newly learned skills sets. Full-time MBA students are only accepted for a Fall Semester start date at Lourdes University.

Full-time MBA program students experience:

  • 2½ hours of class a day, 5 days a week
  • International business experience
  • Professional immersion experience
