The Rowan University Master of Business Administration program consists of 14 graduate classes (36 s.h.) with eight required (18 s.h.) and six elective (18 s.h.) courses. Students have the flexibility to hone skills in specific areas of business – or explore building knowledge across sectors -- to expand insights and stand out from the competition. Students can choose two related Concentrations to build significant depth, two distinct Concentrations to build breadth, or even choose one concentration and three elective courses across disciplines to gain a wide view from varying perspectives. The program is academically challenging, relevant to trends in business and industry, and flexible to accommodate the needs and interests of students. Rowan's MBA program is designed to accommodate both full-time and part-time study.

Prospective students who have not yet satisfied all foundation course requirements may choose to apply directly to the MBA program and complete their foundation courses while enrolled as a graduate student (enrollment will be restricted based on foundation work completed).

Students can choose from a variety of delivery formats including:

  • Evening classes on main campus in Glassboro (Fall and Spring)
  • Eight week courses online (Fall, Spring, and Summer)
  • Hybrid: 50% online and 50% at the Rowan College at Burlington County campus in Mount Laurel (Fall, Spring, and Summer)

The opportunity for flexible scheduling was designed with working professionals in mind.

The following courses make up the Master of Business Administration Online program. Each course is scheduled in eight-week modules with each week of work starting every Tuesday at 8:00 a.m. and ending every Monday at 11:59 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time).
