Your plan of study may differ depending on which class you begin with.

If you complete each course consecutively and do not defer any courses, you likely can graduate in 15–20 months. Deferring courses (in other words, skipping a module) will delay completing the MBA, so we encourage you not to defer courses—especially core courses—since they prepare you for future electives.

Electives vary each cycle and may not be repeated every cycle. If you're interested in a particular elective, don't defer it, since it may not come around again while you're in the program.
