Program Overview

The Part-Time MBA starts in September and January each year. You may complete your degree in as little as two or as long as seven years. Classes are held at Northeastern's main campus.

To earn your degree, you must complete 60 semester hours of credit and achieve a 3.0 or better grade point average. In addition, you may choose to participate in one of our International Field Study programs, which are approximately one to two weeks in length.

While you have the freedom to take Part-Time MBA courses in the order that best suits your schedule, we do offer a suggested curriculum that allows you to complete the program within three years. Many Part-Time MBA students choose to follow our recommended course sequence in order to progress through the program at the same pace and to form a strong network of their peers.
