Evening MBA Student Experience


The Eller Evening MBA is more than a schedule
of classes leading to an MBA degree.

It's a connection to a community of excellence, learning side-by-side with exceptional peers in a way that will transform you both professionally and personally.

While the curriculum is rigorous, the structure of the program makes it possible to earn your MBA with minimal time away from work and family.

A Typical Evening and Cohort

Meet your cohort once a week.

Meet with your classmates from 4-10 p.m. weekly on Tuesdays. 

3:30-4 p.m.

Participants arrive at the Eller College of Management's McClelland Hall. Several students grab something cool to drink and sit down to chat for a few minutes before class. A hot topic is that particularly challenging accounting problem set assigned by Professor of Accounting Jeff Schatzberg.

4-6:45 p.m.

Class starts promptly. Professor Schatzberg opens his PowerPoint presentation showing the solutions to the homework problem set and a lively discussion ensues. The discussion as well as the solutions are captured on video and will be downloaded to D2L at the end of the evening. You’ll go back tomorrow to review problem number three, to make sure you "got it." Now it is time to move onto the next hot accounting topic. It is hard to believe how much you’ve already learned but Professor Schatzberg manages to make class entertaining and the time seems to fly.

6:45-7:15 p.m.

Dinner time

7:15-10 p.m.

Senior Lecturer of Management and Organizations Suzanne Delaney finishes her dinner and is in the classroom by 7:15. You zip in and take your laptop off snooze. You are connected to the high-speed wireless network and see you have several emails from work that you read through quickly before class starts. The class is advancing through statistics at a good clip. However, Professor Delaney boils the concepts down and had posted additional material to D2L that you read earlier in the week so you are caught up. Her class is practical and you have become adept at using the statistical functions of Microsoft Excel.

10-10:15 p.m.

Your team meets to discuss the accounting case study assignment and to select a time to work on it over the weekend. Your team chooses to meet at your favorite coffee shop, which is conveniently located for everyone.
