The Accelerated Path
Highly focused and designed to offer you the fastest return on your investment, the Accelerated MBA program enables you to complete a Katz MBA full-time in an intensive 12-month format, minimizing the time you spend away from the workforce. Designed for students with extensive post-bachelor professional experience and who are focused in advancing in their current industry or professional field, the program begins in early August and is designed to be completed in three consecutive terms, concluding in July.
We provide a strong, broad foundation of business knowledge and we empower you to tailor a program that builds on your unique strengths, life experiences, and professional goals to accelerate your career through integrated learning.
Integrated learning focuses on the links between business disciplines for deeper understanding through overarching organizing ideas and concepts. This provides opportunities to develop and value multiple perspectives, bringing together different perspectives and disciplinary approaches.
Integrative coursework in business communications, data programming fundamentals, and research along with co-curricular experiences such as case competitions, community-based projects, summer internships, and professional development programming complement and reinforce the core curriculum to provide a framework for integrated learning.
You will have many opportunities to individualize your program by choosing the right mix of elective coursework for you. In addition to selecting electives based on your interests, you may choose to complete a Credential, Institute, and/or Business Disruption Series course(s) as part of your MBA studies.
As a Katz student, you may choose to complete a Katz Credential in order to highlight expertise and hands-on experience in a particular business area. Credentials include a bundle of specialized coursework that build your capabilities, knowledge, and experience in a meaningful way.

Integrated Learning Institutes
Institutes are elective, integrated learning experiences designed to bolster your business acumen, build cross-functional dexterity, and deepen your fundamental knowledge by focusing on one industry or area. Institutes make the business disciplines come alive by visiting a variety of companies, meeting with professional/industry experts and helping firms solve real time busines problems. The Katz Institutes are offered in high-demand fields such as technology management, healthcare, and non-profit management.
Business Disruption Series
Through this innovative series, students learn what business disruption is and how to become a catalyst for change. Elect “game changer” courses that highlight faculty expertise on relevant and current business issues and trends. For instance, take a course exploring augmented reality (AR) marketing or learning how the global pandemic has influenced private equity investing.
