Competency-Based Learning

Personalize Your Path to an MBA

If you’re a motivated professional who wants more control over your learning style and schedule, ExcelTrack™ was made for you. It offers the same academic rigor as our traditional online MBA program, only you determine your pace, how many courses you take at a time, and which resources will help you learn best.

Develop Your Skills, One Credit at a Time

One of the great things about ExcelTrack™ is the focused, single-credit course system. You can take as many one-credit courses as you want during each term for a flat tuition rate of $1,550 per 6-week term (excluding fees). The more courses you complete, the more money you save and the sooner you graduate.

Leverage What You Know

As a student in the ExcelTrack™ accelerated MBA program, you will complete a readiness assessment at the beginning of each course to demonstrate your competencies. If you’ve already mastered a subject through previous studies, you can move quickly past those topics and concentrate on the skills you need to learn.

Work Closely With Faculty and Be Prepared

Each course has assigned faculty who are fully credentialed in the subject areas they’re teaching. Several of them have also led the design of these courses. Faculty will work with you to ensure you’ve learned all the material and are prepared for the final assessment, where you’ll demonstrate your abilities in the subject.
