Requirements for Degree


First-year: All entering MBA students are required to be enrolled in the management core classes during the first year (two 15-week semesters) of study. The Marriott School MBA program follows a strict lockstep format wherein first-year students enter the program in the fall, then take all their classes together during the first year. Because of the intensity of the courses and the number of hours spent in group work outside the class room, students cannot work during the first year of the program.

Second-year: During their second year, students are free to choose from a variety of elective courses to fulfill their chosen majors within the MBA program.
