Course Load

The Bridge Strategic MBA program is designed to be flexible for international students (non-U.S. nationals residing in the U.S. or those interested in studying in the U.S. on a student visa) who received a three-year baccalaureate degree (typically around 90 credit hours) instead of a four-year degree. The flexibility of the program fits the needs of both full-time and part-time students. All students take bridge classes and core classes, plus courses in their chosen area of concentration.
