Falls School of Business

You don’t have to be a business grad to join our program. As a matter of fact, almost 40% of our previous Residential MBA students have bachelor’s degrees in areas other than business. Our graduates get a jump-start on their careers as decision-makers in finance, healthcare, science, sport management, and other fields. This unique program incorporates dynamic classroom learning and practical work experience with business mentoring by our faculty.

Professional Work Experience

Unlike an internship, a co-op will allow you the opportunity to take on a role with more responsibility or be in charge of major company projects. Most Residential MBA students are offered full-time jobs at the end of their paid co-op. Co-op elements include:

  • Two days a week in your field of choice
  • 20-25 hour work week
  • Most are paid around $15 per hour

International Business Trip

You will get the opportunity to travel with your cohort and faculty for an immersive experience in global business and culture. Your travel, food, and lodging expenses for the international business trip are included in the program cost.
