University of Colorado – Denver Business School

Program Structure

The Professional MBA is the most popular of the MBA options at the Denver Business School. The flexible schedule allows both full-time students and part-time professionals to complete the program at their own pace.


Because the Professional MBA is self-paced, students create their own class schedule and complete their degree on their own personal timeline. Due to this highly customizable nature of the program, students are not members of a cohort and do not take classes with the same people each term.

Class Profile

There are roughly 400 MBA students per year, with approximately 17 percent international students.


All students have access to the Business Career Connections Center, which aids students in networking, career advising, company and industry information, and provides career tools and resources.

Tuition & Financial Aid

The current tuition and fees for a Colorado resident are $621 per credit hour, and $1,365 per credit hour for a non-Colorado resident. The estimated total amount paid with books and fees is $36,000 for a resident, and $72,000 for a non-resident.
