GTSB Graduate Programs

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Gary Tharaldson School of Business

The University of Mary offers its graduate programs in three formats through the Gary Tharaldson School of Business: (1) An on-site accelerated format; (2) An online accelerated format; (3) Blended with a combination of on-site and online courses.

The accelerated formats provide adult students the opportunity to complete a graduate degree in as few as 15 months while continuing to work. Class size is limited in all formats to ensure interaction between students and faculty and to maintain high academic standards consistent with the University of Mary. Adult students enroll with a cohort and learn from one another as well as the faculty, a teaching and learning style effective for adults. Students in the on-site format meet one night per week for the duration of the program.

The online format has a web-based curriculum that provides adult learners an opportunity to complete a graduate degree from the convenience of their computer. In the blended format, students may take some courses on-site and others online.
