    Three Formats - One Degree

    The Ohio Dominican University MBA Program is currently offered in three distinctive delivery formats, each tailored to meet the unique needs of students:

    • The  LEAD Format: The Learning Enhanced Adult Degree (LEAD) MBA Format is designed to meet the learning needs of the working adult. Students attend classes one night per week on a year-round basis at one of four campus locations (Easton, Tuttle, Main Campus). Students may complete the program in as few as 18 months, and may begin the program at a wide variety of start dates throughout the year.
    • The  Traditional Calendar Format: The Traditional Calendar MBA Format is designed for recent graduates of undergraduate programs who are accustomed to the traditional rhythms of the academic year or working adults who prefer to attend classes on a traditional academic calendar (fall and spring terms). This calendar option maintains between-term and summer breaks and regular campus holidays. It offers students an opportunity to complete the MBA Program in as few as 18 months while attending evening classes at the main campus. A Public Administration concentration is available to students. Students may begin the program throughout the academic year at any of five start times.
    • The  4+1 Format: The 4+1 MBA Format is designed for full-time, undergraduate students who would like to complete an undergraduate degree as well as an MBA in as few as five full-time academic years. The 4+1 Format is offered at the main campus with classes scheduled on the traditional academic calendar.
