Hey all,
I am wondering how difficult is an average MBA curriculum?
Are the test just as in Bacherlor programs, mostly multiple choice? From what I remember most bachloer courses had 2 midterms and 1 final exam for majority of course. Is the same for MBA?

I am trying to get a grasp of what to expect from an MBA program with regards to how much course work and studying is expected.

Depends on your interests, if you feel the subjects are hard then it will be hard,if you really like subjects you can shine with MBA. MBA is a distinct route, generally MBA has two semesters in each year.
There is no fixed time to study, if you study more on daily basis then it will be benefit to you, by understanding the subjects and concepts you can do well in your exams.

I don't say MBA is same as your undergrad, but it is something different, not just MBA, all postgrad courses need some efforts to clear it. But, if your undergrad had the similar subjects as like MBA, then its not a tough job for you, even if your undergrad didn't had the similar subjects, still it is not a tough job i can say, don't take pressure just chill i can say you can do it.

It is apparent that this question is extremely subjective and depends on the individual. What is difficult to one person, may not be difficult to another. In addition, each MBA program differs and may have different demands on the students.
Whilst it is more common for professors to assign individual assignments, projects and tests during undergraduate programs, group projects are a popular element of MBA studies. Teamwork and collaboration skills are both emphasised during MBA studies as these skills will come in to use in the workplace, after your studies. Perhaps this is of interest to you.
Whilst researching potential schools for your studies, take the time to physically visit the schools if your resources allow. Speaking to current students will help you gage how difficult the studies will be, and they will be able to resolve any of your concerns. If you are unable to travel to the schools themselves, there are many online forums with people in similar situations as yourself.
There are some people that believe that most of the first year of business school is spent going over and relearning things that were taught in their undergraduate programs. If this is the case in your situation, you may have a soft landing when you start.
I think you will find a lot of valuable material on our website, simply go to http://www.ARINGO.com or use our free MBA chances estimation calculator.
Good luck.

I went to two different state schools, but I found the MBA was much more interesting. There were more real application projects. In statistics classes, we ran actual models in Excel. In marketing classes, a team and I put together a marketing plan for my company. There were still plenty of tests, but I found it more engaging and practical.
