The Johns Hopkins Flexible MBA curriculum is designed to provide working professionals the leadership skills and knowledge to help them launch their careers.

The Flexible MBA curriculum is offered online and in-person. Each semester, students can choose to take classes in either format for the duration of their eight-week course. All students will complete a total of 54 credits, with the freedom to take up to six years to finish the degree. Students following the recommended program plan usually finish the degree in 2.7 years.


Designed to fit the demanding schedules of the working professional, the Flexible MBA offers a curriculum that blends traditional and project-based courses. This allows graduates to successfully advance in their current field or transition into a new sector.

Flexible MBA concentrations in financial businesses, health care management, leading organizations and marketing are offered in-person and online. Not all electives or concentration courses are available in the online format, although we are constantly adding and developing online courses each semester.

Leadership, business instincts, and entrepreneurship aren’t learned from a book. They are developed by doing.
