Recently chosen as one of the Top 50 Affordable MBA Programs, The Perdue School is preparing tomorrow’s leaders today. Not just an ordinary M.B.A. program, the Perdue School M.B.A. transforms its graduates into outstanding individuals prepared to lead and manage a wide array of organizations ranging from the for profit and nonprofit sectors to healthcare and government industries. Suitable for all undergraduate majors, the program can be completed in as little as one calendar year for full-time students and two calendar years for part-time students (after completion of undergraduate prerequisite foundation courses.) Schedules accommodate the working professional with evening classes Monday-Thursday.

Courses immerse students in "live" case studies, hands-on consulting projects and participation in simulations while evaluating their own leadership potential.
