Engaging In-Person and Online

The strength of Isenberg's Hybrid MBA program lies in its ability to create engaging, face-to-face meetings with peers and faculty. Connecting with peers offers a richer interaction to the course material through conversation, and develops personal networks. Faculty accessibility also serves as a tremendous resource on the course material, as well as professional and academic guidance. Students who prefer a hands-on experience, or are easing into graduate school, thrive in the engaging hybrid format.

The flexibility of in-person or online classes allowed me to balance raising my family, my career, and my course work. It was easy to stay organized and move through the requirements, and each class could be immediately applied in my work.
