Beginning Fall 2018, the MBA program is comprised of 36 credit hours (2 essentials courses, 7 core courses, 2 electives, and 1 capstone).
The MBA program offers courses in Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters. Most MBA courses are now available in an accelerated, condensed format, allowing students more flexibility in scheduling their courses and balancing their lives. Courses are taught as hybrid or completely online, and students should strategize with their Academic Advisor to create a completion plan that works for them, choosing to be enrolled part-time or full-time.
Hybrid business courses meet face-to-face with online content. The in-person classes are taught one evening per week on The Citadel’s campus. All in-person meetings begin at 6:00 pm unless otherwise indicated in the class schedule. Business courses meet in Bond Hall.
Online business classes are taught using CITLearn (Blackboard), an online course management system. Students will login to CITLearn via Lesesne Gateway, the student portal. Students needing technical assistance may contact the IT Helpdesk. Students taking online classes are expected to have a reliable computer with internet access. Students will also need a webcam.
