Anisfield School of Business – Ramapo College of New Jersey

The Ramapo Accelerated MBA  Structure

In the Ramapo Accelerated MBA program at the Anisfield School of Business, students complete 42 credits in twenty months in a cohort. Each cohort moves through the program together, providing support and networking opportunities. Each term, of which there are seven, includes two concurrent courses. Terms take 10 weeks, and all have at least one week separating them from the prior and following terms. Each course consists of two evenings per week on site at the Mahwah campus in conjunction with three hours of weekly online instruction.

Curriculum

Prior to beginning their first term, Ramapo Accelerated MBA students must complete three online preparatory courses in Accounting, Quantitative Methods and Statistics, and Business Writing and Communication. These pre-MBA modules are offered in order to provide students of varying backgrounds with a baseline level of knowledge necessary for their business education. Students with an undergraduate degree in Business can test out of each module. Once the program commences, students take suites of courses grouped under several headings: Foundational Core (including Managerial Economics and Statistics), Functional Core (including Financial and Operations Management), Leadership, and Global. In addition, students can build elective courses into the program. The degree culminates in a Capstone Course-Consulting Project, worth three credits.
