Classes meet one evening per week. The course can be completed as quickly as 21 months, but many students will need more time to complete requirements.

Students in this program can also choose to travel to destinations like Prague.

Curriculum

The Chapman University Professional MBA curriculum has three main components: core/required courses, a capstone course, and elective courses. Students have the option to pursue “emphases” in their degrees, which are comprised of 12 credits in elective courses. Overall, students must complete 50 credits in order to graduate. The core courses comprise 31 credits, electives 15 credits, and the capstone course worth four credits.
