Dr. Kaushik Sengupta, Executive Director of the Online M.B.A. Program, (516) 463-7825.

Within its M.B.A. offerings, the Frank G. Zarb School of Business offers an online M.B.A. program. Online M.B.A. students complete a two-year program with a rigorous core curriculum and advanced study. The program can be completed within two years in a cohort based option. Students can opt for the non-cohort option based on time and other constraints after being in the cohort option for at least one semester. The program requires a 41 to 48 credit course of study in the fundamental areas of accounting, finance, information technology, marketing, international business, operations, communications and leadership skills, global decision making, economics, and the legal environment. The program has a Strategic Business Management focus supplemented with five specialized courses which further strengthen the knowledge of the students in Strategic Business Management.

Two residencies based in the New York area and a Global Practicum on Strategy are an integral part of the online M.B.A. program. As part of the first residency, students will take sessions in library resources, teamwork and oral communication skills. Working knowledge of computers (hardware and software applications) is required. Applicants without prior course work or training must take a proficiency test or complete the online IT workshop. Depending on previous academic preparation, students may be required to take workshops on Calculus for Business Applications  and Statistics for Business Applications . A portion of these workshops will be covered in the first residency while the remainder have to be completed online. As part of the second residency, students will take sessions related to the capstone course. Attendance at these residencies and the Global Practicum on Strategy are mandatory for students in the program.

See the Master of Business Administration  section in the Graduate Studies Bulletin for admissions requirements and course requirements.
