The One Year MBA at URI integrates course work, career planning and development, and work experience within a one calendar year period, at our main campus in Kingston, RI. The program starts in August and continues over the Fall and Spring semesters. During the Summer, you will be taking two evening courses as well as participating in a 6-credit internship or taking two electives instead. There is a total of 15 courses, or 45 credits, in this program. Only 25 students are accepted each year.
The Evening MBA Program prepares you for careers as effective leaders and managers. The program is designed to emphasize conceptual, analytical, technical, and interpersonal skills. Material for this non-thesis program is presented through lectures, discussions, case studies, and both individual and group projects. The MBA program does not require previous instruction in business administration. The program consists of 15 courses (36 to 45 credits, depending upon your undergraduate major). Included in the 45 credits are 9 credit hours of electives that enable you to specialize in a particular area of study. The classes are held at the URI Feinstein Providence campus, 80 Washington Street, downtown Providence, RI.
