Curriculum and Schedule

How the Program Works

The Saturday MBA@FDU Consists of 42 Graduate Business Credits in the Following Areas

• Foundation Courses (12 credits)
• Core Courses (18 credits)
• Discipline Enrichment Courses1 (10 credits)
• Capstone2 (2 credits)

You’ll earn 10 credits in two 8-week modules during the fall and spring semesters, and four credits each summer. Cohort-based classes will begin twice a year, in late August and late January.

 

Discipline Enrichment Courses provide students with an in-depth treatment of specialized business topics across different disciplines.  The selected topics enable students to develop a more comprehensive understanding of the contemporary challenges and opportunities confronted by organizations, such as global business trade and management, sustainability, change management, and business research and analysis.

2  In the Capstone Course, students work as individuals or as a group under the guidance of the assigned faculty advisor. You’ll have the opportunity to conduct research, gather relevant data, and integrate and apply knowledge and skills learned in preceding courses, to develop a comprehensive understanding and to formulate a coherent strategic response in addressing the opportunities and challenges that increasingly confront organizations.
