Cohort-based Distance MBA Program
Deadline: See How to Apply
NMSU’s Cohort-based Distance MBA Program is designed for the working professional wanting to continue their education without compromising their current career. The program allows individuals to obtain their MBA in 24 months through a hybrid course delivery method.
Courses are delivered online and include a synchronous component in which students are able to engage at a distance on one evening each week. The synchronous element allows for interaction between the instructor and students and among the students. Class videos are recorded and are available to students throughout the semester.
Students are expected to take two courses each semester and each summer for two full years. The program begins with a face-to-face orientation on the Las Cruces campus and concludes with a three-day meeting in Las Cruces.
Curriculum requirements include all required courses for the MBA Degree. Specific background-of-knowledge courses must be met before the start of the program. Previous academic work may be substituted for certain prerequisites; however, it is best to contact the MBA Advisor for course advising information. Students are not allowed to substitute MBA program courses based on prior work due to the nature of this program.
In addition to standard NMSU tuition and fees, there is a special fee of $250 per credit for participation in the program. Costs other than these include books, supplies, transportation to Las Cruces for the orientation and concluding meeting, and accommodations in Las Cruces.
