Our Professional MBA is a part time program designed for working professionals who want to continue their careers and earn their degrees at the same time and at their own pace.

The evening MBA program is our most flexible option; students take courses in the evening and can take full advantage of our resources, including our study abroad programs, full-service Rockwell Career Center and all networking and experiential learning opportunities. Our curriculum allows you to dedicate more than half of your courses to electives and optional certificates. You'll apply classroom knowledge to your workplaces on a daily basis — creating an immediate return on investment.
