With an international focus that includes an optional two-week study session in Europe, the MBA program (rolling cohort) cultivates entrepreneurial strategic thinking within the context of an increasingly global, information-driven business world.

Students in the MBA program acquire a robust theoretical foundation and practical learning in core management disciplines and the technical skills and digital competencies needed for data-driven decision-making. As part of the curriculum students work together on a project commissioned by an international company on a global management topic. Students gain additional experience in working in cross-national teams through credit-bearing e-learning courses which students from the Nashua and Athens campuses take at the same time.

The MBA Rolling Cohort program is built on a consecutive series of 7-week residential required courses culminating in a Capstone project. Courses can be taken online, face-to-face, hybrid, or in evenings. Students can take up to 3 courses during a 15-week semester.

Students take the required courses one at a time, but in an intensive fashion: the class meets 9 hours every week in evening and Saturday sessions. Upon completing one course, they continue with the next one in the series. In this way, students will take a total of three required courses during the 15-week term.

The program can accommodate both resident students and working professionals and be completed in less than two years.

Students in the MBA program benefit from:

  • Opportunity to receive certificates in one of the following areas: Stress Health Management, Digital Marketing, Operational Excellence, and People Management Certificates.
  • A flexible schedule that includes evening sessions, as well as the opportunity to do the elective courses online.
  • Real-time case projects developed in cooperation with actual SMEs and business networks.
  • Wide variety of electives such as Branding and Communications, Entrepreneurship and New Venture Management, Investment – Analysis & Portfolio Management, and Decision Support Systems.
  • Opportunity to conduct research fieldwork in real-life business case projects.

The MBA offers opportunities to participate in ongoing faculty-student research projects in various business disciplines and fields. Students may design their Capstone project as a consultancy project for any SME or corporation, or develop a research based thesis under the supervision of a faculty member with research experience in the field.

Qualified students attending MBA programs at universities abroad may participate in the MBA Rolling Cohort program as a visiting exchange student for one or more five-week courses. The University’s Office of International Exchange Programs can help students abroad arrange such study opportunities.
