Frequently Asked QuestionsThe University of New Orleans School Building

If you are planning to pursue your MBA, then University of New Orleans MBA & Health Care Programs is the best place in New Orleans, LA. We have answered several frequently asked questions about our MBA program, application deadlines and procedures below.

What is the difference between the Traditional track MBA and the Executive track MBA Programs?

The University of New Orleans MBA & Health Care Programs allows students to obtain a Master’s of Business Administration through two different programs. When considering which program is best for you, you must take into consideration the following:

The Traditional track MBA program offers academic excellence, accessibility, and affordability to part-time and full-time students. Courses are offered during weekday evenings at our Lakefront campus. The curriculum includes internet-based learning which helps our students balance their academic load in combination with onsite courses.

One of the advantages the Traditional track MBA program offers is that it can be initiated on a rolling basis for the Spring, Summer, and Fall semesters. Full time students also have the option to complete the MBA program in three major academic semesters.

Our first-rate professors have limited class enrollment, which provides a personalized learning environment. The education provided to the UNO student makes them very marketable and attractive to their future employers.

The Executive track MBA program at The University of New Orleans is designed to provide maximum convenience and minimum aggravation for those managers and professionals who do not have the time to deal with difficult schedules and extended breaks. Students have the ability to earn the same degree as Traditional track MBA students with a compressed weekend schedule.

The staff takes care of administrative details so that the students have more time to prepare for classes. The classes are conveniently scheduled on alternating weekends, primarily all day Saturday and Sunday, and are located on UNO’s Lakefront Campus in our exclusive EMBA classroom.
