12 Credit Minimum

The MBA degree requires a minimum of 60 credits, with an expectation that students earn roughly 15 credits per term over four terms. All full-time CBS MBA students will be required to register for, at the very least, 12 credits of coursework. The 12 credits can be spread out through the duration of the semester, including block weeks, A term, B term and full-semester courses.  If students would like to take fewer than 12 credits, they must submit a written request to their Academic Advisor and receive approval from the Office of Student Affairs, except during the final semester when a student only needs to take as many credits as are required to meet degree requirements.
