The iMBA is the Whitman School’s uniquely flexible executive M.B.A. program for executives. Syracuse University has offered an M.B.A. program via distance learning since 1977. As with the full-time M.B.A. program, the iMBA is accredited by AACSB−the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. In the iMBA, students from 34 states and 10 countries have participated in the M.B.A. All students participate in five day residencies on the Syracuse University campus each January, May and August. Optional residencies in selected international locations are also offered. During a residency, students meet their new faculty and classmates, complete initial assignments, form teams, and obtain all the information they need to progress smoothly in their coursework for that semester that is delivered virtually. Between residencies, coursework is supported by the full-time faculty using a web-based course management system. Final exams for each semester’s courses are usually taken on campus at the start of the next residency. This program allows students to complete the M.B.A. degree in about three years (with up to seven allowed) without interrupting their professional commitments.
The Whitman School has been accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International) since 1920.
