Isenberg's MBA program is offered in full-time, online and blended formats. The applied curriculum provides the core business knowledge common to all top MBA programs. It also is structured to allow the student to focus on their own particular interest area, whether it be finance, marketing, operations, or outside the immediate realm of business, such as education, public health, or computer science. Our online and blended offerings are best for individuals who look to gain further skills to advance within their organization or are in career transition, without interruptions to their busy lives.
