From time to time, classes may be offered at the Metropolitan Campus in Teaneck, NJ.
Evening, Saturday & Summer Classes to Accommodate Busy Professionals
To accommodate the busy schedule of working professionals, classes are offered on weekday evenings, on Saturdays, and during summers. You can choose classes from among the evening, Saturday, and summer classes to suit their schedules and objectives.
Weekday classes are each 2.5 hours long, and span a 15-week traditional semester.
Saturday classes are 3.75 hours long, usually held over a 10-week period in either the morning or afternoon. Some Saturday classes run for 12 weeks, with classes that are 3 hours and 10 minutes long. Saturday sessions run in the fall and the spring. Saturday classes are not scheduled during the peak of tax season.
Summer classes are 3.5 hours long, over a twelve-week period.
Start the MST Program When You are Ready
Although the cycle of classes typically begins in the fall semester, you can enter the program at any time, subject to class scheduling.
You may take courses at the pace that suits your work-life demands – taking as many as three classes at a time, pacing yourself by taking one class per semester, or even skipping a semester on occasion if you have other demands on your time. In scheduling classes, you should keep in mind the rigorous nature of the program.
Typically, students take one or two classes per semester and strive to complete the degree part-time in two to three years. Regular attendance and active class participation are essential to success in the program. Absent extenuating circumstances, all course work (excluding prerequisites) must be completed within five years of enrollment.
