The Accelerated MBA is a full-time, 12-month program designed for young professionals and recent college graduates who wish to expedite their entry into the job market or minimize their time away from the job market, and also want to pursue an MBA degree.
The program exposes students to all major business disciplines, including finance, marketing, international business, and economics. In the spirit of the College’s award-winning undergraduate curriculum, the Wagner Plan for the Practical Liberal Arts, the Accelerated MBA also puts heavy emphasis on oral and written communication skills, as well as the building of a cohesive learning community.
The program features an intensive, tightly structured curriculum, with integrated classes offered in a lock step program, limited to 12-16 bright and highly motivated students per cohort.
The Wagner College AccMBA program is designed for individuals who understand the essence of time. Our professors instill in us that success lies within exemplary preparation and thinking better than those around you. This program encourages total-engagement in our studies in order to enhance our ability to think critically, engage unfamiliar situations and achieve success professionally. In a unique way, each course taught us to activate a corporate mentality through rigorous traditional coursework as well as dynamic discussion in team-based learning scenarios. We quickly realized the traditional MBA definition of tests, assignments, and discussions are checked at the door when beginning this life-changing educational experience.
