The University of Massachusetts Amherst Full-time residential Master of Business Administration is intentionally small so we can give our students the attention they deserve.
We know you're motivated. We'll coach you to become a creative problem-solver, levelheaded decision maker, and resilient leader. We'll ask you to bring bold ideas to the table. You’ll develop your analytical muscle to tackle today’s biggest challenges and harness the most exciting opportunities.
Collaboration is part of our DNA. We'll train you to be an effective team player. Our small-class sizes give you one-on-one mentorship from our world-renowned faculty. And your student-peers offer support that lasts for years after you graduate from Isenberg.
Career Ready from Day One
Incoming students kick off their MBA program with a three-day Leadership Orientation Session. We affectionately call this "MBA bootcamp" because students are put through their paces on presentation skills, resume writing and team building exercises so they can start networking and career development from day one.
The session culminates in a panel of senior Isenberg alumni executives speaking about career paths. From our alumni panel, students gain invaluable lessons in mobility, adaptation and resilience through conversations about networking, team building, management styles and leadership.
