Learn at night. Apply it during the day.
Either of our evening MBA schedules will provide you the same opportunity: to learn the industry, gain experience, and make real-world business connections in New Orleans that have been established by our top-ranked business school and Center for Entrepreneurship and Community Development.
The full-time, “Fast-track” schedule allows you to get the program done in the quickest amount of time (one calendar year), if your other obligations allow for it.
