Program Description

FlexMBA students are working professionals with a passion for innovation and the drive to create business success. They explore new ideas and opportunities and discover and develop ways to transform business and the world.

FlexMBA students excel in their current roles and are ready to take on more responsibility and make greater contributions. The part-time MBA program enables students to meet the goals they and their organizations have set for their educational and professional development.

Support for FlexMBA Students

All applications must be submitted before the final deadline of July 15 for the Fall 2020 enrollment.

Transitioning from the Military

The Rady MBA core curriculum provides the analytical tools and business fundamentals needed to succeed in a business environment. Then, in your Lab to Market capstone project and in a variety of action learning electives, you will apply those fundamentals to real business problems, building a portfolio of experiences that assist in career transition. The Rady School’s small size means that our career development team can provide individualized attention as you assess your strengths and explore the career path that is right for you.

Advancing Your Military Career

Military leaders – both active and reserve – are increasingly well-educated, and the competition for top positions is tough. A Rady MBA creates a competitive career advantage by providing a rigorous education in business in an environment that aligns with the values of the military. More importantly, it enhances the contribution you can make to national defense, enabling you to be more effective in leading larger and more complex organizations in a period of change.

In appreciation of your service to our country, the Rady School of Management will waive the application fee for all current and former members of the military applying to any Rady MBA program. Please contact Graduate Admissions to receive the application fee waiver before submitting your application.
