The online MBA from Syracuse University is the Whitman School’s uniquely flexible M.B.A. program for working professionals. Syracuse University has offered an M.B.A. program via distance learning since 1977. As with the full-time M.B.A. program, the online MBA program is accredited by AACSB−the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Syracuse University’s online MBA program features the same curriculum content as the full-time, on-campus MBA program, and graduates earn the same Syracuse University MBA diploma as on-campus students. The curriculum features a strong foundation in core business principles, and students may choose a specialization to focus their studies on an area relevant to their careers and personal interests. Students can take two courses (6 credits) each semester to complete the program in as little as two years. Students must complete 12 core courses, 5 electives, and attend three residencies (1 credit each) during the course of their program. Each semester is 12 weeks.
The Whitman School has been accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International) since 1920.
