Marquette to launch fully online MBA

January 9, 2018

New 28-month cohort program will help meet market demand

MILWAUKEE — The Marquette University Graduate School of Management has announced it will now offer a fully online MBA program. The school will begin enrolling students in the first cohort for the 28-month program in January 2018, with coursework set to begin in the fall semester.

A 25-student cohort will take two classes per term each fall, spring and summer. The total program is 33-39 credit hours depending upon a student’s background. The curriculum for the online MBA is identical to the schools’ newly redesigned part-time MBA. Students with an undergraduate degree in business will take a slightly different path the first two terms.

“By offering a Marquette MBA online, we can now deliver our nationally ranked, values-based graduate business program to a broader array of students,” said Dr. Jeanne Simmons, associate dean of the Graduate School of Management. “Increasingly, prospective students have asked for more flexible delivery options in graduate education, including MBA programs, and this fully online program will meet those market demands.”

The admissions standards and process will be the same for the online cohort as it is for Marquette’s other MBA programs, Simmons added.

“While we won’t require work experience, it will be highly recommended that students have at least a couple of years of experience,” she said.

More information, including a detailed curriculum map, is available online. Prospective students should email or fill out the online information request form.
