Three Pillars of a UVM MBA: Quality, Intimacy, Flexibility
"UVM can offer its MBA students all the personal attention they deserve." — The Princeton Review
In UVM's MBA program, students' learning experiences are enhanced through small classes averaging only 15 students. Open discussions flourish, and students have articulated that they feel a part of a supportive educational environment with unparalleled access to professors outside of class. Our professors are accomplished in their fields: actively involved in research, actively involved in the corporate world shaping management practices, 75% have co-authored a book in their field.
With an average of fifteen students per class, you’ll have incredible access to your professors and get to know your classmates. Lively, open discussion is a hallmark of all the UVM MBA. You’ll be encouraged to share your experiences and point of view, and learn from those of your classmates.
A lively learning atmosphere
The diverse qualifications of our students, most of whom have had business or other professional experience prior to entering the program, creates a lively learning atmostphere. The camaraderie that develops among the students becomes an important program component.
The UVM MBA is the right choice for both the working professional and the full time student.
Two-thirds of our MBA students are full-time professionals. These part-time students have ranged from surgeons to managers of semiconductor manufacturing facilities, from classical musicians to directors of internet service providers. UVM understands the multiple pressures faced by working students and designed the program with a high degree of flexibility to meet these needs. Our MBA courses are offered in the evenings, making it easier for full-time executives to balance the demands of career, education, and their personal lives.
The other third of our students are enrolled full-time to obtain their degree in two years or less. The evening class schedule allows for uninterrupted time day regular working hours during which students can focus on their studies, participate in internship opportunities, or focus on an independent research project.
