Obtaining an MBA always was on my bucket list, however, until I found Brandman* I was facing large loans and a strict school regiment. The flexibility of the program along with Kia’s tuition assistance made the perfect combination. An MBA gave me the self-confidence to trust my ideas and question conventional thinking.

Time

  • Most of our undergraduate degree programs are 120 units. Since UMass Global offers 6 accelerated 8-week sessions per year, you have plenty of opportunities to take classes that meet your needs.

    • Taking 2 courses per session would allow you to finish in 3 1/3 years.
    • Taking 1 course per session would allow you to finish in just under 7 years.
    • Students driven to finish on a faster schedule can do so with MyPath programs which are self-paced.

    Keep in mind that transfer credits from prior college coursework will help to reduce time to degree. 

    • For the MyPath programs, the time commitment depends entirely on your drive and availability.
    • For the traditional credit hour programs which have eight week sessions, students generally find that they need to allot approximately 15 hours per week for a 3 unit course.
