Stetson University is one of 187 elite institutions worldwide with both its business school and accounting program accredited by AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
Elect to Learn Abroad
As a program elective, Flex MBA students have the option of traveling to an international location to observe foreign industry, including both local and multinational businesses. The trip, which is included in the tuition, takes place after fundamental coursework has been completed so that differences in application across the diverse business disciplines can be appreciated. As opposed to a classroom, business practices and environments are studied in real time.
Graduates often cite in their exit interviews that their international course was one of the most rewarding experiences of their time in the program. Destinations are chosen based upon the size and diversity of the industry of the city as well as the overall economic climate of the country. Prior locations include Turkey, Hungary, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Dubai and South Africa.
See the Career Impact
The Flex MBA for Professionals allows students to engage in true developmental coaching with a trained executive coach. Our coach utilizes tools and strategies that are grounded in research with proven effectiveness in a business setting. Many of the tools and strategies deployed are first introduced in the cohort setting, where activities elevate understanding and mastery of the concepts. Then, individual coaching sessions are conducted at specific increments to practice and apply these strategies. The coaching sessions are personalized to meet the needs of each individual’s professional development plan over the 16-month program and beyond.
When Stetson MBA students bring their fresh knowledge, skill and ambition into the office, coworkers and higher-ups notice. That's why a Stetson MBA leads to career advancement, increased opportunity and a higher salary. Alumni work for a variety of organizations.
