Flexible Learning.

Our MBA program is as flexible as it is rewarding.

DSU has two routes to fulfill your goal: full-time study to earn your MBA in just over one year or a part-time option to accommodate your busy life. Pick the plan that works best for you.

Courses can be taken on the Madison campus or online. Content and expectations are identical, but the instruction mode can be adapted to your needs. If you prefer personal interaction, we offer traditional face-to-face classes and online courses with live-online discussion. Of course, an asynchronous online approach incorporating video lectures and online best-practices is always available.  

With individualized attention and the ability to complete your MBA on your schedule, you get an MBA program that not only positions you for success but puts you and your needs first.
