RESIDENTIAL MBA

Falls School of Business

In just 10 months, you can gain hands-on work experience and earn a master’s degree.

Residential MBA

We are looking for 20 exceptional students who would like the opportunity to:

  • Complete a Master of Business Administration degree.
  • Graduate in 10 months.
  • Gain paid professional work experience (20-25 hours/week) in your field of choice.
  • Get international business exposure.
  • Experience life off campus in a private studio apartment, with most expenses included.

You don’t have to be a business major to join our program. As a matter of fact, almost 40% of our previous RMBA graduates have majored in areas other than business. Our graduates get a jump-start on their careers as decision-makers in finance, healthcare, science, sports management, and other fields. 

This unique program incorporates dynamic classroom learning and practical work experience with business mentoring by our Falls School of Business faculty.
