Whether you choose to enter the full-time, part-time, or Executive MBA program at Bowling Green State University you will experience efficient, practical, instruction at a great value. Offering a crash course in business, Bowling Green’s full-time MBA “is only twelve months long,” and is comprised of a series of foundation, core, and capstone courses. Tuition is reasonable and, for highly qualified students, graduate assistantships can cover a portion of “the cost of tuition, and [pay] an additional living stipend.” Given the program’s accelerated time frame, low cost, and scholarship options, students say, “It is probably [a] much better bang for the buck than most two-year programs (even at Ivy League schools.) ” Similarly, the school’s twenty-three-month Professional MBA is “perfect for busy, working professionals.” Designed for students with a minimum of three years in the workforce, “the location and times are extremely convenient and the cost is very reasonable,” making it an affordable way to boost your career prospects in Bowling Green.

While convenience and value are large part of the equation, students assure us that practicality isn’t the only reason they chose BGSU. For many, the school’s small size and community atmosphere is a major draw. Here, the administration is accessible, and the school is “very well-run and very user-friendly.” A current student shares: “I have had a very positive experience working with everyone in the college from the secretaries to the dean.” Thanks to uniformly small class sizes, students are “encouraged to work with our fellow students through group projects and presentations.” A current student adds, “We have a well-rounded cohort and the class spends a lot of time debating all kinds of issues relating to the material.” No matter which program you enter, you’ll benefit from friendly professors, who “share a love and enthusiasm for teaching as well as helping their students to [achieve] success.” Providing both rigor and support, “the program is challenging (as it should be), but the professors are encouraging, treat us as professionals, and make themselves available outside of class and office hours to aid in our success.” Successful in the real world—not just the ivory tower—Bowling Green’s “knowledgeable and friendly” faculty “consistently incorporate[s] useful information and real-life scenarios into their instruction, making each class valuable to my future career.” A student in the Professional MBA program agrees: “Even though I’ve been working for over twenty-five years, I have taken away a good deal of information to apply on the job.” Despite the strength of the curriculum, some would like the school to offer “more areas of specialization.” (Currently, BGSU offers three areas of concentration in accounting, finance, and supply chain management.)

In addition to the full-time and part-time programs at Bowling Green, the Executive MBA Program gets top marks from seasoned professionals, who say “the course work is very challenging and stimulating” and “professors are extremely knowledgeable and friendly.” To make everything smooth and simple, “all course registration and book purchases are handled by the staff for the Executive MBA program, easing the burden on working professionals.” While EMBA students “only spend Friday, Saturday and Sunday on campus once a month,” they say, “Subjects are taught on task and time is used wisely.”
