MBAE Program Description

The MBA for Executives (MBAE) program is an accelerated weekend program designed for professionals and executives seeking a cutting-edge advanced management education. The MBAE program leads to the attainment of Purdue University’s MBA degree.

The MBAE program meets on Saturdays for 18 months. The program is broken into 6 modules, each consisting of 10 weeks. The first module for each incoming cohort begins on the first Saturday after Labor Day.

The MBAE program cost is all-inclusive. An important feature of the program is the International Business Practicum, a weeklong study abroad that takes students on a visit to firms overseas.   Throughout the course of the program, students enjoy the high quality learning environment afforded by the executive cohort nature of the project teams as well as the exemplary coaching provided by top ranking graduate certified professors with extensive research, consulting, or corporate executive experience.

The program has been recognized both locally and nationally for its high standard of quality. Fortune Magazine nominated Purdue University Calumet as a “Best Value for an Executive MBA in the U.S.” and Northwest Indiana Business Quarterly named it the “Best University to Obtain an MBA” in Northwest Indiana and South Bend/Michiana. In today’s competitive market, you need an edge. A Purdue MBA from Purdue University Calumet will give you that competitive advantage.
