Graduate Students

Because the vast majority of our masters students are working full-time, students want flexibility in selecting the academic program and class times that offer the optimal balance among their career development, professional and personal priorities.

Cohort Programs

Many students value the cohort option for the weekend MBA, supply chain and information systems programs because they begin and end each program with the same group of working professionals. The small classes sizes for the evening MBA program, Accountancy and Social and Applied Economics programs also foster networking and professional relationships among students and faculty.

Social Media

Social media groups are a great way for working professionals and alumni to stay in touch. Once you are accepted into your masters program, you can join your program's group on LinkedIn, Facebook and other social media sites. For example, students and alumni can join:
