Full-Time MBA Program

The Full-Time MBA program is built around a cohort of students admitted together each fall semester. It all starts with the pre-term program, an intensive two-week immersion including leadership development, career management, team building, academic preparation, and cross-cultural management, as well as social activities with alumni and current students. In each of your first two semesters, you will be assigned to a learning team of five students that leverages the cohort’s professional and cultural diversity; your peer network is at hand. Over the next 21 months, you will meet the challenges of a rigorous curriculum, and challenge each other toward excellence outside the classroom as you chase your career aspirations in New York City and around the globe. The Full-Time MBA Program requires your commitment to full-time study, managing group dynamics, and professional distinction. At Zicklin, you will find the spirit and the grit you need to launch a new career trajectory.
