Get Your Degree on Your Time

Many flexible scheduling options give you the convenience to start and complete a graduate degree on your terms. See below for available options and our Degree Completion Timeline, or visit our Degree Comparison Chart for more details.

Full-time options

Pursuing a graduate degree at Saunders on a full-time basis allows you to get the most out of our degrees. This will give you the most flexibility in selecting courses and customizing course options, while allowing the best opportunity to pursue a paid cooperative education experience.

Accelerated MBA and Master of Science degree formats allow you to complete your degree in as little as one year. Full-time, two-year MBA options allow you to incorporate more program features, including additional options for dual-concentrations, pursuing additional electives, join Saunders Consulting, or work in paid co-op positions.

Part-time options

Saunders offers evening and online courses to give you the flexibility to pursue a graduate degree around your busy schedule at work and at home. Most programs offer a part-time option, and it is possible to graduate in as little as 2.5 years, when taking courses over fall, spring and summer semesters.

Online courses

Select courses are available online. These will allow you to compliment your on-campus courses with the convenience of taking classes remotely. This may be useful during semesters where you are busier than normal or perhaps traveling out of town.

Saunders delivers degree options that provide the timeline built for your goals. Finish full-time programs in as few as two semesters, or part-time in as little as 5 semesters in 2.5 years. There are three semesters (or “Terms”) throughout the year including fall, spring and summer.
