Fully Employed MBA
The "Fully Employed" MBA (FEMBA) is a regular twenty-three month accelerated program that meets on Saturdays. An intimate cohort of 25 to 30 follows a lock-step path that completes in less than 2 years. Classes are delivered over 10 week quarters. Students with at least 3 years work experience often prefer the comprehensive approach offered in the FEMBA program.
Special program services include all books, materials, guest speaker series, and program registration. A minimum of at least three years work experience is required. Because all or most students have ample work experience the program is designed to provide a comprehensive MBA. The average FEMBA student age is approximately 33. The FEMBA program admits students in the Fall quarter only. Our new FEMBA 9 cohort begins in early October of 2007.
