The Edwards MBA can be completed in only 12 months if taken full time, or part time in up to 36 months. A decidedly unique aspect of this innovative MBA program is the focused learning and integration of business concepts.  Each course is offered consecutively in a modular format. Courses are scheduled in three week durations creating an intensive learning environment that immerses students in the subject area while allowing flexibility in scheduling your MBA education. Furthermore, our students learn how business concepts are integrated into business decisions through a combination of applied courses, exercises, case studies and projects incorporating each functional business area.

As part of your program, you'll complete an International Study Tour, an opportunity for students to experience business within an international context and immerse themselves in the business environment of a different country. The tour allows students to explore a country's business practices, challenges and culture, through a combination of company visits, discussions with trade officials and business leaders, meetings with executives and government officials working within the country. The International Study Tour is designed to enhance the classroom curriculum by providing first-hand exposure to industries, organizations and business practices in the host country.  Students learn how the global economy functions and how executives build stronger companies through engaging the global marketplace.
