Schedule for 2018-19

“The Accelerated Master’s Program was a great experience. The one-year layout was very manageable and allowed me to keep up with my career both in the workplace and in the classroom. Classes were a mix of discussion, lecture, and group breakout exercises. I was able to meet professionals from a wide range of companies, all with different levels of experience and industry background.”

Tanya Lee, AMP ’04
Deloitte Consulting

The schedule for 2018 – 19 is shown below. The order of Friday/Saturday classes may switch occasionally to accommodate faculty availability, but the meeting dates will not change. Two alternate weekends are scheduled to make up for cancellations (rare) in case of inclement weather. Alternate weekend dates are shown at the bottom of the schedule. On-site study sessions/office hours are offered on Thursday nights before Friday classes.
