The Eller Evening MBA accepts students from a broad range of professional backgrounds: corporate managers, entrepreneurs, physicians, engineers, public sector employees, people working in nonprofit organizations and more.

These students have three or more years of professional experience and a desire to move their career forward with the knowledge and polish they develop through the pursuit of an MBA.

Applicants complete an online application form and two essays while procuring two letters of recommendation, one set of official transcripts and official GMAT scores. They also pay a $100 application fee. The Admissions Committee will review completed application packets and identify viable candidates for an interview—preferably in-person, but alternatively by phone. The Admissions Process includes details.

We admit students on a rolling basis following review of application materials and an interview. Typically, a final decision is issued a month after the application is complete and all supporting materials have been received. If accepted, you will be given a time frame in which to make your decision and submit a non-refundable $500 enrollment fee to confirm your spot in the class.

Features and Benefits

The degree you earn will be a fully accredited Master of Business Administration. However, the curriculum structure is different from the regular Eller MBA and most MBA programs. Also, because this is an accelerated program, some of the more basic elements of MBA knowledge are covered at a quicker pace.

For most of the program, classes meet once weekly, from 4-10 p.m. with dinner and a break. The program begins with a four-day session on leadership, and there is a ten-day international trip. The program lasts 24 months.

The classes are held in Phoenix at the Eller College of Management downtown Phoenix campus and in Tucson at McClelland Hall on the University of Arizona's main campus.

  • Our curriculum is dynamic and maximizes return on investment for working professionals
  • All participants are successful and motivated professionals with three or more years of professional experience
  • Our faculty and staff, along with enthusiastic participants, create a supportive, productive learning environment
