The Weekend Cohort MBA Program is a rigorous, yet rewarding degree designed for the self-directed manager. The program's hybrid format combines the best elements of classroom and online learning tailored for the working professional. 

Classes meet on DePaul's O'Hare Campus 
on alternate Saturdays. Students complete the program in two years.

 Advantages of the DePaul Weekend Cohort MBA
