An Engaging Curriculum

The Evening Cohort MBA Schedule includes the required courses of DePaul's signature MBA core curriculum optimally sequenced to prepare students for the next term. 

Because of the nature of this program’s design, focus and selectivity, students are not waived from core courses based on prior academic work. Students are expected to have completed courses in calculus and statistics prior to starting the program.​


Evening Cohort MBA students start in the fall quarter, but students may apply any time of the year. The admission committee meets in February, April and July.
