Schedule of classes
Students attend classes on campus once-a-month so they can complete their degree in 22 months. Classes are scheduled for Friday night (6:30 -10:00 pm), Saturday (8:00 am - 5:30 pm), and Sunday (8:00 am - Noon).
Each course is a combination of short lectures, group activities, discussion, presentations, case studies, exercises, etc. There are frequent breaks, and each professor is used to teaching in this timeframe and with adult students.
Learn in a collaborative, experientially based environment based on adult learning principles. You will get the opportunity to work closely with a cohort group of students who are your colleagues in the field.
