All MBT students are required to complete 30 credits.
Students control how quickly they move through the curriculum by tailoring their course load each semester. Some students are able to graduate in three semesters, though the average student takes about 2–3 years. Students are allowed to take up to 5 years to earn an MBT. The program is very flexible, allowing students to accelerate or decelerate their program as needed.
Students may take as many or as few credits per semester as they feel they can handle. International students must take a minimum of six credits to fulfill their visa requirement. To stay active in the program, students must register for a class in fall and spring semester. However, those who need a semester off may apply for a leave of absence.
Many MBT students travel for work and our faculty are aware of the tensions and difficulties that come with balancing a busy career and a graduate business education. Our faculty tries to be flexible about students needing to miss occasional sessions due to professional travel; such situations are resolved in advance on a case-by-case basis with the professor and student. In some courses, it is more of a problem to miss a session than in others.
Additionally, the MBT program offers flexibility for students who travel by providing two and four credit courses that start and end at different times throughout the semester. Four-credit classes meet once a week for the full 14 weeks and 2-credit classes meet during either the first half of the semester (A-term) or the second half (B-term). So, for example, a student who knew they needed to travel extensively during the second half of a semester could take 2-credit courses during the A-term and no classes during the B-term when they are traveling.
