The Gatton MBA Program is defined by three important qualities that set us apart:
Value – Ours is a small program by most standards. But, the advantage of small size becomes obvious when considering the numerous factors that drive the quality of the program. For starters, our program affords closer interaction with our world-class faculty, greater cohesion among MBA students, and tighter networking opportunities with employers, alumni, and visiting executives. Also, value is also a function of our highly competitive tuition rates, which creates a higher rate of return (the overall cost of the MBA versus post-MBA starting salary) on your educational investment.
Experience-enhancing – Whether you enter the program as a highly experienced, seasoned manager, an early career corporate fast-tracker, or a relatively inexperienced, yet energetic executive-to-be hopeful, our curriculum features many experience-enhancing activities, exercises, and simulations that are real-world, real-time, and hands-on. Each is designed to build your skills set, broaden your perspectives, and challenge and test your capabilities.
Expedience – Our 36-hour program enables most students to earn their degrees in three semesters (beyond the program prerequisites). Though expedient, the program doesn’t sacrifice quality. Our program is rigorous, intense, and fast-paced. Simply put, it gets you prepared for the job market sooner, thus further enhancing the value of the Gatton MBA.
The Gatton MBA is fully accredited by the AACSB International (The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business).
