La Salle University’s One-Year MBA program is for recent graduates and those with working experience who are in various stages of their careers. Students with an undergraduate degree or minor in business are able to complete the program in as little as 12 months. Students without an undergraduate business background must complete the required pre-MBA foundation courses prior to the start date of the program.
The program is designed to be very intensive in nature. Students take a full course load during the fall and spring semesters in addition to a winter intersession and summer semester. Students will gain the professional and personal skills to be a leader in their chosen field. U.S. and international students are eligible for partial scholarships. Formal work experience is not required.
La Salle’s program is accredited by the Association for the Advancement of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), which less than 5 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 higher will be granted a GMAT/GRE waiver. Beta Gamma Sigma students from all AACSB institutions worldwide are eligible for a 25% tuition discount. Eligible students should contact the program director as soon as their application is submitted.
Students in the One-Year MBA program have the option to specialize in in accounting, business systems and analytics, or finance. Students entering the accounting track must have an undergraduate degree in accounting. The accounting track is ideal for students who are preparing to meet the 150-hour CPA requirement. Students majoring in finance take the managerial track or CFA track. Our CFA track is designed around developing the skill set necessary to become a Chartered Financial Analyst.
