• MBA Program Curriculum

    The Hamline MBA curriculum is delivered in a series of six modules that strategically group like topics to help you develop real world leadership skills. Instead of taking a series of disjointed classes in a random order, the modules thoughtfully lead you from introductory to advanced critical thinking and explore the multi-faceted issues that businesses face.

    The Hamline MBA requires successful completion of 48 credits. Three elective courses in one area can create a program of specialized studies or concentration in international management, finance, conflict management, or marketing.

    The Hamline MBA is designed to be completed in 24 months.
