Early Career MBA

This MBA program (formerly Conventional MBA) is tailored for individuals with limited professional work experience (0-5 years). Classes meet on the vibrant San José State University Campus where students have access to a wealth of resources. Courses typically meet evenings and Saturdays in eight-week sessions. Students follow a pre-set sequence of core courses and select elective courses depending on their area of interest. An approved three unit Internship may count as one of the elective courses.
