Graduate Business Programs

Colleagues in work discussion.


Designed for the Working Professional

Our convenient online and weekend classes are perfect for busy professionals. The program offers four, nine-week sessions providing students with the opportunity to sign up for a new session in September, December, March, and June. Courses that meet at our NYC-Metropolitan campus are offered on Friday evenings, Saturday mornings, or Sunday mornings.

Working professionals around the globe can take advantage of the remote learning opportunities. Online courses meet in a virtual classroom, accessible 24/7 during the nine-week session. The structure of the online courses allows students to plan their course load around their work schedule so that their education does not interrupt their employment. Online quarters run concurrently with our on-campus classes.

Program Options

The program offers tracks for Business and Non-Business undergraduate majors. Both tracks are 39 credit programs (fewer credits for students eligible for course waivers, as determined by the School of Business).

No. Our MBA program is designed to accommodate the academic needs of working professionals with undergraduate degrees in areas outside of business as well as graduates of business programs. STAC’s MBA program includes a series of 7 or 9 core courses that provide graduates of all disciplines with the academic foundation in business that they will need to successfully complete their MBA.

The MBA degree requires a total of 39 credits. Full time students may complete the program in five MBA sessions. However, the majority of the students are working professionals who take about a year and a half to complete the program.

A maximum of 6 graduate transfer credits may be accepted for courses comparable to a STAC course.

Sessions begin in September, December, March and June. First-time students can start the program in any session.

There are four sessions per year and each session is for nine weeks. Campus-based courses meet once per weekend on Friday evening from 6:00 PM until 10:25 PM and Saturday or Sunday morning from 8:30 AM until 12:55 PM. Online courses follow a quarterly schedule in a virtual classroom setting. Online course assignment due dates/times are determined by the professor.
