The Penn State Great Valley MBA program consists of 48 credits. Based on previous undergraduate or graduate coursework, students may receive an exemption for up to 18 credits of foundation course work, as well as the pre-program requirement.
Three open electives enable students to customize their program to meet their particular career interests, or earn a graduate certificate.
Courses are offered in seven-week sessions. Classes meet two evenings per week in a face-to-face format or in a blended format with an online component. There are six seven-week sessions each academic year.
Students may begin at the start of any session and can expect to complete their degree in 2-3 years going part-time, or 12-18 months if going full-time.
Students must successfully complete the SARI (Scholarship and Research Integrity) requirement of the Penn State degree in order to graduate.
Penn State’s Schedule of Courses lists course availability. Although the course numbers, times, and availability on the University registrar’s schedule of courses are correct, your educational record may require the listed prerequisites (or not).
In addition to the courses appearing on your plan of study, open electives may be selected from the full array of courses offered by the Management Division (with the exception of foundation courses from which the student has been granted exemption). Check the course description page to learn about Penn State Great Valley course offerings and prerequisites. Certain courses offered by other programs may also be approved if applicable to the student’s program.
