  • Evening/On-Campus MBA Students - The KSU MBA is extremely flexible. You can tailor your education to your own pace and interests. Most students complete the program in two years by taking two classes each semester (including summers). In addition to the core courses, you can also customize your curriculum by enrolling in a range of business electives to broaden your education.

    Please use the KSU Graduate Catalog and the projected MBA class schedule to begin crafting a plan for completion of your degree.

    If you ever have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment to discuss your degree progress, please contact Austin Swanson, Program Manager at

    WebMBA Students - The KSU WebMBA is streamlined for your success. Students complete the program by taking two classes per semester for five consecutive semesters (including summers), finishing in just 20 months. The MBA degree and diploma earned is the exact same as that which our on-campus students earn. 

    Please use the KSU Graduate Catalog and the projected class schedule to help you know what classes to register for. The projected class schedule is organized by cohort number and will help you stay on-track toward degree completion.
