Indiana University South Bend - Leighton Redesigns MBA Program

Program integrates online learning; can be completed in as few as 18 months

Indiana University South Bend's Leighton School of Business and Economics has redesigned its MBA program.

The program, which is aimed at working professionals, now integrates online learning. Half of the content of each course will be delivered online, while the other half will take place in class. Two eight-week sessions will be delivered each session, with classes meeting weekday evenings.

IU - Leighton's MBA program is flexible, giving students the option to adjust the workload to match their schedules. Students who take nine credits per semester can expect to complete the program in between 18 and 24 months. Those who take six credits per semester can complete the program in somewhere between 24 and 36 months.

Another new feature of the MBA is the introduction of capstone experiences, which are hands-on projects where students can explore their interests in a real-world environment.

Additionally, new courses tackling soft skills like communication and teamwork have also been introduced. Optional concentrations in Finance, Human Resource Management, and Marketing are available.

IU - Leighton is accredited by AACSB International; its MBA program is currently ranked in Businessweek's part-time MBA rankings.

Students can start the program at two entry points per semester. The 2015 application deadline for the first fall module is July 15th; for the second fall module is September 15th. Although the GMAT is required to apply, waivers are available based on past academic experience.

For more information, please see the news release from IU - Leighton announcing the MBA redesign.
