Can you dedicate one evening a week to attend onsite classes in midtown Manhattan and some additional time for online learning when it’s convenient for you?

If you answered, “Yes,” Hofstra University’s new accelerated MBA program in Manhattan may suit your needs perfectly. Located at Lenox Hill Hospital on East 77th Street and Lexington Avenue, this program is open to students with at least three years of professional experience and can be completed in 24 months through a combination of onsite and online courses. Waiver of the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) will be considered for qualified candidates.

Students enter as a cohort of no more than 25, creating a collegial atmosphere that fosters learning.  Following completion of the core courses, which cover fundamental business topics, you specialize in one of two concentrations.

The concentration in strategic business management builds on foundational coursework to explore in depth topics in corporate management, while the strategic healthcare management concentration prepares students to lead in today’s complex world of healthcare.

Hofstra’s Zarb School of Business, accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), is well known for its accomplished full-time faculty and successful alumni network.  We also maintain a Career Services center that exclusively serves graduate students in their job searches.
