Customization and intellectual rigor come together in our recently redesigned curriculum. While required courses provide a needed foundation, electives enable you to personalize a course of study that matches your professional interests and goals. Through electives, you can also pursue an optional concentration.

In total, 60 completed credits are required for the MBA (36 core course credits and 24 elective credits), but you can take free of extra tuition charge a maximum of 10% "extra" credits over and above those required for your degree. We recommend a credit distribution of at least 18 combined credits of core and electives per trimester. The six additional credits may come from other electives, or from the Capstone Project. In addition to the 60 cr requirements, you may participate in Field Trips – currently we have the New York Field Trip available to our students.

  • "I have been recently nominated as the Regional IT Manager for West Africa at Unilever. My CEU Business School education has been a key differentiator during an otherwise very competitive recruitment process. I would like to thank all my great peers of the 2013-14 cohort and the wonderful faculty at the B-School for the valuable learning experience I had during my time in BP."
