Full-Time MBA ProgramSam M. Walton College of Business at University of Arkansas
The new MBA program consists of five components: 28 hours of core courses, 9-12 hours of career track electives, 3 hours of internship or study abroad, and 5 hours of professional development courses. By focusing on consumer products and retailing, the various core and elective disciplines are integrated around a central theme, giving students depth as well as breadth. A new cohort is admitted each summer with the first fall semester devoted to on-line pre-MBA prep courses. This allows students to gain an additional four to five months of work experience and reduces both opportunity costs (lost income) and out-of-pocket costs. Students arrive on campus in January for the 16 month program
