In the Notre Dame Two-Year Full-time MBA program, students attend four semesters of classes (64 credit hours). Each semester is divided into 7 week modules with additional electives (for second year students). The first year covers the core curriculum while the second year allows students to focus on concentration tracks (according to their post-MBA goals).
Each semester ends with an interterm intensive week, which allows students to further deepen their understanding of various topics with short courses and a break week which allows students to study abroad.
The core curriculum include: Financial accounting, Leadership & Organizational behaviour, Statistics, Foundations of Ethical Business Conduct, Financial accounting II, Macroeconomics, Finance I, Marketing management, Finance II, Microeconomics, Strategic Decision making, Management communications and Problem solving. The interterm intensives include Live Cases and Courses in China or South America. The concentration tracks are broadly classified into: Business Leadership, Consulting, Corporate Accounting, Corporate Finance, Entrepreneurship, Investments and Marketing.
