Curriculum

MBA@Syracuse

MBA@Syracuse features the same curriculum content as the full-time, on-campus MBA program, and graduates earn the same Syracuse University MBA diploma as on-campus students. The curriculum features a strong foundation in core business principles, and students may choose a specialization to focus their studies on an area relevant to their careers and personal interests.
