Pace University MBA Program Structure

The Pace University MBA program at Lubin School of Business is very flexible and classes are offered during the day, evenings and weekends.

Besides the seven Foundation Core Courses, the curriculum consists of fifteen credits as part of the Professional Core, 15 credits as part of a concentration, six credits as electives (seven for the MBA in Accounting), and a three-credit capstone course.
