Program Overview

The Innovator’s MBA has been ranked as the #1 part-time MBA program by Businessweek in the Northeast since 2007

COHORT EXPERIENCE—Blended Learning Format

You’ll find our signature MBA program student-centered, inquiry-driven, and problem-oriented from start to finish. We believe the best teaching modality is one that combines on-line learning with robust face-to-face interaction as it provides the greatest level of student participation, integration, and flexibility that your life and the world demands. For working professionals this format best emulates the real-world as we form teams and coordinate action across geographic distances, time zones, cultural perspectives and languages.

It adds to the quality of discussion and engagement inside the classroom, which leads to your applying concepts and tools from the program into your company in real time. The Innovator’s MBA program is designed for you to apply business management theory to practice through field projects, simulations, and a capstone experience.

For those of you who are new to the cohort model experience, this format is simple — everyone starts together, works through the program together, and finishes together. The goal is to build a strong network of learners as you progress through the program. This approach to learning emphasizes collaboration over competition amongst your peers, a valuable asset in today’s workplace.

You can complete your degree at either a one-course or two-course pace per semester.
