Graduate School of Management
Marquette University’s MBA program is taught at three locations – Milwaukee, Waukesha and Kohler.
The main MBA program is offered on the Marquette campus in downtown Milwaukee. There is easy access from all of Milwaukee’s freeways. MBA classes on campus are taught in a very flexible format. Classes are offered one night a week, Monday through Thursday, typically from 5:45-8:25. We also offer some classes on Saturdays in flexible formats that allow you to attend class but still have some Saturdays free. Many students like to supplement their evening classes with a few Saturday classes. Part-time students typically take one or two classes per semester and full-time students take three or four.
The off-site MBA programs are cohort, lock-step programs. These programs are more convenient for students in the geographic area but are slightly less flexible than the campus program. Courses are taught by Marquette’s regular faculty.
We offer the equivalent of two classes each semester, back-to-back on the same night - once per week starting at 5:15 and ending at 10:30 in Waukesha and 5:30-10:45 in Kohler.
Classes will be offered during the Fall, Spring and Summer semesters at the pace of two per term.
As a "lock-step -- cohort group" there are typically no additional entries to the program once the group has matriculated. Students who drop out of a cohort group are not guaranteed entry into another group. However, these students will be able to complete their program requirements through courses taken at the Milwaukee campus.
The off-site MBA Programs offer you the chance to earn a high quality Marquette MBA degree, just closer to home or work.

Marquette University is offering its same high quality, nationally ranked MBA Program in Kohler, WI.
A unique program, offered in conjunction with the Kohler Company, but not limited to Kohler employees. Qualified candidates from all corporations are welcome! This is a lock-step, cohort program, completing the Marquette University MBA degree in 33 months.
The next cohort begins Fall 2013!
Each entering class must have a minimum of 25 students, and a maximum of 30 students, drawn from both within Kohler Company and outside.
The courses are delivered in a blended format. That means that students will do more learning with the use of technology but still have significant face to face class time.
The Kohler MBA program has a schedule that works for busy professionals, and it gives you the Marquette advantage. Classes meet in Kohler one night per week typically 5:30 to 9:00 pm. The rest of the work takes place online, on your schedule. It's flexible and challenging, and it gives you all the value and competitive edge of a Marquette degree.
We have used the blended model in our Executive MBA Program and in some of the part-time MBA courses for a number of years and we find that it works well. Basic content is delivered via voiceover PowerPoint presentations, videos, etc. Then class time is used for discussion and high level learning.
Some of the benefits we have seen from this format are:
- Use of technology has enhanced the learning experience
- Blending the convenience of on-line learning with the value of face-to-face exchange
- You don’t always have to be in the same place at the same time to cover important material
- Use classroom time for essential discussion and sharing of ideas
- Respect of your time
- More flexibility for students
- Better, higher level discussions in class
- Students come prepared to discuss rather than listen to lectures
- Respect your different learning styles and diversity of backgrounds
- Go at your pace
- Study when it makes sense for you.
Time to move forward in your career and earn your Marquette University MBA closer to home or work.
