Full-Time Program

The full-time enrollment option allows Bard MBA students to complete their 60-credit M.B.A. degree in the shortest time possible. This two-year option is best suited for students who are employed part-time or less. While all Bard MBA enrollment is hybrid (online + in person coursework), students are encouraged to recognize that the full-time option is a full master’s level course load of 15 credits per semester, requiring adequate time and headspace to complete the homework, classwork, and group projects.

Time Expectations:

  • 2 year program with fall and spring semester enrollment
  • 15 credits per term
  • 1 4-day Weekend Residency per month
  • 6 hours of online classes per week (2 nights per week, 3 hours per night)
