Overview

Experiential Learning Accelerators at UConn Give M.B.A. Students Real-World Experience

Essential to the University of Connecticut's MBA Program curriculum is the incorporation of innovative experiential learning accelerators that integrate classroom learning with practical applications. These unique practice-based initiatives integrate traditional teaching and classroom instruction with high-profile practical applications to help close the gap between theory and practice. UConn MBA Program's experiential learning accelerators include the SS&C Technologies Financial Accelerator, Innovation Accelerator, $2M Student Managed Fund, and SCOPE (Sustainable Community Outreach & Public Engagement). Experiential learning accelerators are what ultimately give UConn MBA students the competitive edge of highly desirable real-world experience that today's global businesses demand.

UConn's experiential learning initiatives bring together talented M.B.A. students, top business faculty, and front-line industry executives to investigate and develop solutions to real-world, real-time, complex challenges facing business today. This intense educational model significantly benefits all parties involved: it offers a real-world lab for ground-breaking faculty research; it delivers tangible, innovative solutions to current market challenges faced by sponsoring companies; and it provides a dynamic learning environment for students that merges traditional education with practical experience.

Motivated, Experienced Faculty Members Contribute to UConn's Excellent Reputation

Educating leaders for 130 years, the UConn School of Business has been accredited by AACSB International -- The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business -- since 1958. This premiere accreditation, coupled with various institutional rankings, places UConn among the top 3 percent of business schools worldwide. As leaders in business education, UConn's world-class M.B.A. professors are critical to the learning process. In addition to teaching, many are actively involved in scholarly research activities or business consulting that enables them to stay current in and contribute to their fields of knowledge. When UConn faculty members introduce original research and practical experience into the classroom, students benefit from the intersection of cutting-edge knowledge and practice. This winning combination shortens the learning curve and equips graduates to immediately add value to hiring companies.

Three M.B.A. Programs Provide UConn Students With Many Options for Flexibility

The University of Connecticut's School of Business offers three programs that lead to Master of Business Administration degrees. The Full-Time MBA Program allows students to focus on earning their degrees in just under two years. For students who wish to continue working while they study, the Part-Time MBA Program offers increased flexibility; courses take place primarily in the evening and up to 9 credits of independent study are available. The part-time program takes an average of three years to complete, but may be completed sooner by motivated students. Finally, the Executive MBA Program allows individuals with considerable work experience to complete the program in twenty months by attending primarily weekend classes. A wide range of students are accommodated by these programs, and UConn is dedicated to minimizing the obstacles to attaining an M.B.A. degree.

A Far-Reaching Network of Connections Gives UConn MBA Students Access to Opportunities Worldwide

In addition to individual faculty research, the school's extensive network of centers and institutes assists in carrying out UConn's research and education mission, serving as a resource for businesses, both in the state of Connecticut and worldwide. As coalitions for innovation, UConn's centers bring together cross-disciplinary faculty perspectives and a strong interface between the university and the business community. M.B.A. students not only benefit from the knowledge and research being developed by the centers and institutes, but also from the opportunities and relationships associated with them.

M.B.A. Degrees from the University of Connecticut Yield a High Return on Investment

In today's tough economic climate, the return on investment for an M.B.A. education is more important than ever. "Forbes" ranks UConn's MBA Program 27th nationally for ROI with a post-M.B.A. salary increase of $45,000. Compared to this salary increase, tuition and fees for the 2009-10 academic year for the Full-Time MBA Program at UConn are exceptionally reasonable for both Connecticut residents and out-of-state students. Additionally, the school works to keep fees and expenses low for all of its students.

Graduates of UConn's MBA Programs Are in High Demand by High-Profile Companies

Primary recruiters of graduates from the University of Connecticut's MBA Programs include General Electric, CIGNA, Aetna, IBM, United Technologies Corp., Wachovia, Hartford Financial Services, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Gerber Technologies, ESPN, and UBS.
