Master of Business Administration
The Master in Business Administration is focused on teamwork, leadership, and effective decision-making processes. The University of Michigan-Flint MBA instruct students in the proper application of general management principles and advanced problem solving techniques. Our group project based approach enables students the opportunity to further develop skills such as: communication, critical and analytical thinking, integration of key knowledge, creating support structures, the ability to effectively interact with a diverse demographic, plus much more. The MBA program offers a great amount of diversity through the educational and employment backgrounds of our students, along with the geographies where they reside. Diversity offers a key learning tool. Students will learn from our outstanding faculty; but also their MBA peers. We encourage different ways of thinking and problem solving which provides our students additional learning tools. Students will develop personal and professional networks that will last for many years to come.
The MBA can be taken in a variety of course modes: Net+, Evening and Online. Students can complete a full program in either Net+ or Evening; online is not a full program.
Net+ does require students to attend on campus sessions twice per semester. Here is the schedule for those weekend sessions.
|Net+ Weekend Residency Schedule|
|7:30 am - 8:30 am||Catered Breakfast / Networking|
|8:30 am - 12:30 pm||AM Class Session|
|12:30 pm - 1:30 pm||Catered Lunch / Networking|
|1:30 pm - 5:30 pm*||PM Class Session|
*A light snack is also served during the afternoon class session.
Residency session attendance is mandatory.
NOTE: If a Net+ MBA student takes two courses in the same semester (one AM Course and one PM Course), that student will be on campus for the entire day on both Friday and Saturday of each weekend residency. If a student elects to take a single course in a semester, said student will be on campus for 1/2 of each day Friday and Saturday, either the morning of afternoon session, depending which time slot the course is scheduled. When registering for courses, students should elect only one course for each time slot (AM or PM). Students can take a maximum of two courses per semester in the Net+ MBA due to the on-campus sessions.
The Evening MBA courses are offered evenings on-campus. Courses are offered from 7:00pm - 9:45pm, Monday – Thursday; there are no Friday or weekend courses. Courses during the Fall and Winter semesters meet one night per week, in Spring and Summer they meet twice per week. Students may take one, two or three courses per semester. Students may also take semesters off, if needed. The Traditional MBA program was developed to create an effective learning environment for both working professionals and those students entering directly from an undergraduate program. Classroom interactions are enhanced through lectures/group discussions, debates, simulations, guest speakers, team-based lessons and presentations, plus many other engaging activities. The smaller class sizes allow students to develop strong support networks for personal and professional growth.
