Fast Track M.B.A.
The Fast Track Executive Master of Business Administration program provides an opportunity for rising executives and professionals with six or more years of management-level work experience to obtain a master’s degree in business administration. Participants gain a wide range of new skills and knowledge by combining course work with day-to-day business activities.
The program is targeted to rising business executives, entrepreneurs, nonprofit managers and service professionals. It differs from other master’s programs at VCU as a result of its unique modular curriculum, which integrates components of communication, technology, service/quality, globalism and strategy. The modules include 1) team building and leadership, 2) business foundations, 3) analysis and decisions, 4) global challenges, 5) organizational culture, 6) productivity and innovation, and 7) strategic management.
The Fast Track Executive M.B.A. Program is a lockstep program that meets alternating weekends, Fridays, 12:30 to 6:15 p.m. and Saturdays, 8 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. The program can be completed in approximately 20 months.
By completing three additional courses offered in the evening M.B.A. program, students are able to add a concentration in one of the following areas: business analytics, corporate finance, entrepreneurship and innovation, global business, human capital, information resources management, investments, real estate, and supply chain management.
The Fast Track Executive MBA program offers a rolling admissions process, meaning completed applications are evaluated by the admissions committee as quickly as possible upon receipt. The admissions committee meets monthly and will review all completed applications received up until that date. Interviews with the program director for qualified applicants will be scheduled after the committee application review and, typically, admissions decisions will be made within two to four weeks of this interview. Our best advice is to submit a completed application as soon as possible. Completed applications received after May 1 will be reviewed on a space-available basis.
