Proficiency in accounting, quantitative methods and the use of Excel increases the likelihood of a successful entry to the MBA program.
In order to ensure proficiency we may require students to complete online preparatory courses from GMAT Business ReadyTM in Accounting and Quantitative Skills, at their own expense, before they begin class. One or both of these courses may be waived during the application process, depending on an applicant's prior education and work experience.
- Students should arrange for training in basic Excel skills, if needed.
- MBA applications are not required to submit GMAT or GRE test scores.
Schedule of residential sessions:
The MBA meets monthly, from Friday through Sunday.
The schedule creates a strong and dynamic learning community that is essential to the knowledge and trust in one’s colleagues that makes action learning most effective. It allows for more time between classes while students are on site to accommodate guest speakers, field trips, and the like.
For details, please see the academic calendar.
Program scope and duration:
This 60 credit program requires a minimum of 6 trimesters or 2 years to complete.
Curricular Design Process: Design of the MBA curriculum is informed by outside experts and the public. This process includes extensive survey of the literature, long series of informational interviews with opinion leaders, a structured process of qualitative and quantitative market research, and ongoing guidance by a steering committee composed of business leaders, sustainability experts, educators, students, and Marlboro participants.
Larger discussions around the subjects of social responsibility and sustainability happen across the whole curriculum, and are not restricted to one or two courses. To this end, our faculty stay connected and share discussion points and their own perspectives.
