About Butler

The Butler MBA 

The Butler MBA provides significant return on investment, with more value-added extras than other programs. It's a nationally ranked Indiana business school that's locally connected and has the top international accreditation. The program is designed for working professionals and you complete the program at your own pace, unlike many other lockstep programs.

The program is unique in the way the courses are taught. Most courses are experiential and incorporate global issues and live cases and projects with local companies. You will complete real projects for actual businesses, which will build your skills and expand your network. 

Concentrations are available in Entrepreneurship and Innovation (NEW), Finance, International Business, Leadership, and Marketing. Or you may pursue a General MBA.

MBA Curriculum

The MBA curriculum was revised in the spring of 2014 and highlights include the new concentration in Entrepreneurship and Innovation, the addition of two new core classes that are required (Business Practicum and The Entrepreneurial Mindset) and a revised operations management course (now titled Information Management and Business Analytics).

The required curriculum now consists of 30 credit hours of core classes, 8 hours of electives or a concentration, plus up to 10 hours in competency areas (which may be eligible for waiver or testing out with proficiency exam.)

Real Flexibility

A key benefit of the Butler MBA is flexibility. Unlike most other programs, you can choose when to take particular courses and at what pace, allowing you to balance work, life and graduate school. Some other MBA programs are lockstep and tell you what to take and when, not allowing breaks for important life events and work conflicts. 

The program was designed for working professionals. Most classes meet one night per week during the regular semester, with accelerated summer sessions and some Saturday classes.

The Butler MBA can be completed in approximately two years on a part-time basis, depending on the pace you choose for yourself. The introductory tools courses are accelerated and can be completed in as little as one semester. In addition, you may be able to test out of these introductory courses or waive them based on prior coursework.

Part-Time and Full-Time Options Available

You have the added flexibility of completing the program on either a part-time or full-time basis, which is determined by the number of courses you take per semester.  You can start part-time, switch to full-time, or vice versa.
