MBA Core Classes “Block” Scheduling

Block scheduling 2015-16The Graduate School of Business is organized by “block” scheduling. Core classes are arranged into groups or “blocks.” Each block of classes will be offered on a specific day and will rotate through fall and spring semesters. One class in each block will be offered during the daytime, which means we will have one daytime class per day, Monday – Thursday. The only time a class may not be offered is if a professor is on sabbatical or teaching abroad.

We hope that this new scheduling model will help students effectively plan ahead and help answer the question of when classes will be offered.

If you have any questions about this new model, be sure to contact your advisor.
