Full-Time MBA

The Full-time MBA program (FTMBA) offers students who have earned a degree in business the opportunity to complete their MBA in as little as 12 months. Students who did not major in business earn their MBA in 15 to 24 months. The program welcomes students with work experience and those who enter directly after their graduation from college. Students are able to enter the program in the fall, spring, or summer.

La Salle’s MBA students gain communication, computer, and quantitative skills needed to be successful business leaders on every continent. FTMBA students have the option of specializing in accounting, business systems and analytics, finance, general business administration, management, or marketing. As a result of La Salle’s worldwide recruiting efforts, students in this program are immersed in an intercultural environment while attending their classes. Partial scholarships and assistantship opportunities are available on a competitive basis to support well-qualified American and international students; please refer to the section on Scholarships and Assistantships.

La Salle’s program is accredited by the Association for the Advancement of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), which less than five percent of business schools worldwide attain. Applicants with an undergraduate business degree from an AACSB accredited program who have a minimum overall GPA of 3.2 or above will be granted a GMAT/GRE waiver. Beta Gamma Sigma students from all AACSB institutions worldwide are eligible for a 25% tuition discount (space permitting.) Eligible students should contact the program director as soon as their application is submitted.

Prospective students interested in admission for summer 2014 and fall 2014 may feel free to request an appointment in person or by phone with the program director.
