The Smith School's MBA programs have a STEM-designation, highlighting the curriculum's focus on analysis and data-driven methodologies. This designation reflects and acknowledges the degree's significance for those interested in pursuing roles in data analytics and technology-driven industries.

The Flex MBA program follows a 24-month format:

  • All required courses are completed with a student's cohort at their home campus, with the option to take the online version based on exceptional circumstances. Electives are a mix of in-person courses at students' home campus or online.
  • Students may focus their electives in the areas of Digital Marketing, Finance (Corporate or Investment), Innovation & Project Management, or General Management. However, official concentrations do not exist at the Robert H. Smith School of Business and a notation will not appear on your diploma or transcript indicating an area of focus.
  • Degrees conferred from May 2023 to present receive the STEM-designation.
  • The MBA must be completed within five years, per University policy.
