Oregon State University College of Business Full Time MBA
You won’t find a one-size-fits-all approach at Oregon State. Our programs are designed to meet your needs on your terms: - Choose your Concentration: At Oregon State, you can customize your experience by choosing among seven tracks, including Business Analytics, Commercialization, Executive Leadership, Global Operations, Marketing, Research Thesis or Wealth Management; and two additional degrees, Accountancy MBA and Pharmacy MBA. - Attend Class Full-time or Part-time: if you are highly motivated and have a business background, you can earn your MBA in as little as nine months. If you are unable to attend school full-time, we will help create a custom plan of study that allows you to earn the same degree on a schedule that works for you. To accommodate working professionals, our MBA courses are available in the evenings. Most tracks can be completed on a part-time basis in 2-3 years. Pick Your Format: While most tracks are taught on-campus in Corvallis, the Executive Leadership track is offered in both Portland and Bend. This program is taught using an online/hybrid model in which about 70% of the course material is available online while the remaining content is presented during face-to-face class sessions, about once a month (per course). Learn by Doing – You won’t spend all of your time in the classroom at OSU.
