Curriculum – Notable Features

Full-time MBA Program Overview
Each Full-Time MBA class begins with a pre-term session called LEAD (Leadership Enhancement and Academic Development) Camp. LEAD Camp prepares students for their first semester in the program's 53-credit-hour curriculum. The Full-Time MBA program features a full-time/daytime core curriculum that students complete in 16 months.

A new class of Full-Time MBA students begins every August. Students follow a lock-step progression through the program, taking all of their core classes together Monday through Thursday of every week. Students' first semester of coursework addresses the program's core curriculum. Students begin taking elective courses in their second semester. Elective courses are offered in the evenings beginning at 4 p.m.

The MBA degree is obtained by completing the School of Management's 53-hour program, which consists of 29 hours of core courses and 24 hours of elective courses. Students may choose a focus area within the 24 hours of electives, but are not required to do so.

Examples of focus areas:
  • Accounting
  • Finance (Corporate, Investment)
  • Healthcare Management
  • Information Technology Management
  • Innovation and Entrepreneurship
  • International Management
  • Leadership in Organizations
  • Management Information Systems
  • Managerial Economics
  • Marketing Management
  • Operations Management
  • Real Estate
  • Strategic Management

Strengths of the Full-time MBA Program
Unique. Selective. Rigorous. These three words capture the essence of the School of Management's Full-Time MBA program. Sixteen months is all that is required to gain the most respected degree in business.

  • Full program cost is approximately $26,000, one of the best values in Texas.
  • Well funded for scholarship with 75% of students on average receiving scholarships.
  • Scholarships help out-of-state students pay the equivalent of in-state tuition.

  • Located in Richardson, Texas, close to many multi-national corporations.
  • 16-month timeframe includes summer internship, equal to one year off of work.

  • An average GMAT score of 668 puts our students in the company of smart people.
  • Our students regularly place in the top ranks of national case competition.
  • With 40% of our students international, our students learn the global perspective.
  • One of the top 50 Full-Time MBA programs in the United States according to US News and World Report.
  • Renowned faculty (Ranked 16th in North America for Faculty Research Productivity)
  • Supportive TEAM of professionals
  • Intimate “Cohort” of 60 students

Opportunities Outside of Class
While the Full-Time MBA Program is academically rigorous, students do find time for life outside of class.

  • Happy Hours
  • Networking Events
  • SOM Research Center Participation
  • Student Organizations
  • Intramural Sports
  • Community Service Projects
  • Company Visits
  • Business Case Competitions

These are just some of the ways in which our students spend their time outside the classroom—enriching both their personal and professional life.

Choose the path that’s right for you!
