How it Works

How our Hybrid MBA works

First: Take the opportunity to build your global network with a four-day leadership course at our Boston, London, or Dubai campus. There are also online options for those who don’t want to travel.

Next: Join classes over one four-day weekend a month and choose how you learn, on campus or online, according to your situation. You can take 50% of the courses from home by joining live online in either Boston, London, or Dubai time zones. The other 50% of your courses you can take on the campuses themselves. Either way, you’ll be taught by expert practitioner-professors and work on practical projects with diverse teams of professionals.

Choose: The full range of electives are available at our global campuses in Boston, San Francisco, London, Dubai, Shanghai, and New York. You can take electives at any of these campuses or you can choose from our range of online electives and continue to study from home.

Finally: Graduate within two years with a world-class MBA from the first triple-accredited business school.
