Customize the best path for you.
Similar to a traditional MBA format, our holistic Evening MBA is built to give you access to everything you need to succeed in the marketplace. Our curriculum starts you with the business fundamentals, giving you practical frameworks you need to know that night so you can then put your new knowledge and skills to use in the workplace the next morning, delivering next-day effectiveness.
For those who have a nonbusiness degree, this program structure helps you build foundational business acumen at the start. For those who already have an undergraduate degree in business, this format will take your previous study to an advanced level, incorporating your professional experience and insight.
Our customized curriculum also allows for the early exploration of your specific interests through electives and hands-on learning. Choose from an array of courses and experiences — from strategy to marketing to finance to operations. With access to more than 90 electives and time to complete multiple concentrations, you have the freedom to make your MBA experience your own. In addition, you get access to faculty who are tops in their field and regularly called on for their expertise in business and industry decisions worldwide. This combination is ideal for your MBA and career success.
At Goizueta, we don’t ask you to choose between what you need to know and what you want to learn — we ensure you can do both, and do them very well.
