Isenberg’s Hybrid MBA offers the best of both worlds – a combination of flexible in-person classes where you can engage with faculty and colleagues, and online coursework that accommodates your busy schedule. In-person courses are offered each semester at satellite locations in Boston and Shrewsbury, Massachusetts. Beginning in Fall 2023, our Shrewsbury classes will be relocating to Worcester.
Our program is highly adaptable to your needs and schedule, and allows you to earn your degree in as little as 2 years without putting your life on hold. Our hybrid class schedule is designed to allow you to take the majority of your classes with in-person meetings, with the remaining classes offered online. And if your schedule changes, you can elect to take more fully online classes.
Every semester select courses are offered as hybrid, requiring students and faculty to meet for five in-person class sessions. The remainder of the coursework is completed online, allowing you maintain a flexible work/life balance.
GMAT/GRE waivers are available for those who qualify.
