If you work for AstraZeneca, one of Delaware’s largest employers, the Alfred Lerner College of Business and Economics is proud to offer you the opportunity to complete a UD MBA at your worksite. Each fall and spring semester, two UD MBA courses are taught at the company’s Fairfax, Delaware, location. Additional courses may be offered during summer and winter sessions. Classes are taught face-to-face in real time, either in person or via remote video linkage. The program is structured so that you may complete all classes on-site at AZ, with the option of combining online courses with those taught on-site in order to stay on pace with your cohort of students going through the program.
Benefits of Taking All Classes On-Site at AZ
- Convenience Classes are just a few steps away — no rushing to campus to make it to class in time, no parking issues, no driving! Courses are taught one night each week and on Friday afternoons to take advantage of your flexible Friday schedule.
- Cohort Structure Moving through the program with the same group of people allows you to form excellent team communication skills and learn a great deal from a cross-section of employees representing various departments/functions throughout the company. The common knowledge base that the group acquires through each course fosters more stimulating classroom discussions and an easier transition into each new class.
- Consistent Class Size Classes will remain at a size that meets the minimum required for UD to deliver an on-site program. This allows us to avoid canceling classes for lack of enrollment, which would subsequently lengthen the amount of time it would take to complete the degree.
- Timely Completion of Degree By following the on-site schedule, you can complete our AACSB-accredited degree in about 30 months while maximizing your AZ tuition benefit.
