The Northeastern Full-time MBA Program is a 24-month program that allows you to increase your knowledge of business, gain real-world experience, and position yourself for career advancement. The MBA program integrates a strong academic program with practical business experience. You can specialize in a career track - Finance, Marketing, or Operations & Supply Chain Management - to gain expertise in key business disciplines that are valued by leading companies. A key distinguishing feature of the Northeastern Full-time MBA is the Corporate Residency, where you will work for six-months in a full-time, paid, MBA-level position.
