Schools & Colleges
The typical pattern is two courses in the fall and spring semesters and one course in the summer. Summer is accelerated so only one course is advisable.
The MBA is a 16-course program, so it will take you three years and one semester to earn the degree if you take five courses annually. A 10-course MS program will take at least two years following this pattern. Additional time will be necessary if common body of knowledge (CBK) or prerequisite coursework is required.
Taking three to five courses in the fall and spring semesters is considered a full-time course load from the Business School's perspective. In the summer semester, a full-time course load is two courses.
For financial aid purposes, a full-time course load is two courses in the fall and spring semesters. Please consult the Financial Aid Office for further information.
Please complete a petition.
The petition can be sent directly to an advisor, to the general advising email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or faxed to the advising staff: 303-315-8199.
The advisor will forward your petition and file to the program director for their review. Generally, it takes two weeks to process. The petition and file will be returned to the advisor who will contact you to let you know if your request has been approved or denied.

Consider selecting from any of these courses: BUSN 6520, Managing Individuals and Teams, BUSN 6530, Data Analysis for Managers, BUSN 6540, Legal and Ethical Environment of Business, BUSN 6550, Analyzing and Interpreting Accounting Information. BUSN 6520 and 6540 are subjects that are somewhat familiar to students, so these courses make returning to school more reassuring. BUSN 6530 and 6550 are prerequisites for many of the core MBA courses. The selection of subsequent courses increases greatly once these prerequisites have been completed.
No; however, if you have questions, please contact us at 303-315-8200 or email@example.com.
