Executive MBA Program: Time Commitment

Classes are held for 32 weeks of each year for two academic years (September-June). You’ll expect to spend eight hours in class each week, with an additional 15-20 hours in outside preparation, including weekly learning team meetings. Some students report a lower time investment, but this varies with academic experience and professional skill. You may wish to review the calendar to see what an average month looks like.
By scheduling only one full day of class per week, Oregon Executive MBA’s courses are tailored to working professionals and allows for travel and work commitments. Students whose sponsoring organizations allow for a tailored weekly schedule, and whose families are supportive, find they are able to balance work, school, and personal lives very well.
Our program continues to evolve and adapt to student needs based on feedback from alumni and each cohort. Recent enhancements have included a greater emphasis on global learning and access to career management services.
