Graduate School of Management
Marquette University’s MBA program is taught at two locations – Milwaukee 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 5:30-8:15. 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. Classes are offered in 8 or 16 week modules. Part-time students typically take one or two classes per semester and full-time students take three or four. While most classes are offered in a face-to-face format, we do offer some courses in a hybrid or blended format, and a few are fully online.
The Kohler MBA is a unique program offered in conjunction with the Kohler Company, but not limited to Kohler employees. All qualified candidates are welcome! This is a lock-step, cohort program, completing the Marquette University MBA degree in 33 months. Courses are taught by Marquette’s regular faculty.
Classes will be offered during the Fall, Spring and Summer semesters at the pace of two per term. The Kohler MBA program schedule works for busy professionals. Classes meet in Kohler one night per week from 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 of the value and competitive edge of a Marquette degree.
Each entering class must have a minimum of 25 students, and a maximum of 30 students, drawn from both within Kohler Company and other employers. Students proceed as a lock-step, cohort - but still have the option of taking different classes on the Milwaukee campus.
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 in-person class time.
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 online via narrated PowerPoint presentations and videos. Class time is used for discussion and high level learning.
Some of the benefits of this format are:
- Use of technology enhances 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 better, high-level discussion and sharing of ideas
- Respect of your time
- More flexibility for students
- Students come prepared to discuss rather than listen to lectures
- Respect for different learning styles and diversity of backgrounds
