UTA MBA Programs

The MBA Professional Cohort

An AACSB-accredited 24-month MBA program is now minutes from home or the office.

The MBA Professional Cohort course schedule is designed to accommodate the busy lifestyle of working professionals. This team-based format of the traditional MBA is structured so that students complete each course sequentially, allowing them to focus on only one subject at a time. Team members will complete three courses each fall and spring semester and one or two courses each summer session. This allows individuals to complete their MBA in only 24 months, while consistently meeting on the same days of the week throughout the program. The MBA Professional Cohort consists of 45 credit hours and is designed for working adults with or without prior business education. Due to the Cohort’s lock-step format, waivers are not allowed in this version of the MBA.

The MBA Professional Cohort is conveniently located in Downtown Fort Worth. The MBA Professional Cohort is an excellent choice for individuals seeking to develop their business skills within a team environment. Students earn project team experience that is highly valued in today's business world. The program offers exceptional networking opportunities with top companies in the region, including American Airlines, BNSF Railway, Alcon Labs and Lockheed Martin. Many of the MBA Professional Cohort team members come from these, and other, major corporations in the area.
