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 ten courses of 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. For the Professional Immersion, each student will build experience with a local business to supplement their MBA. 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
