Full-Time Cohort MBA

The Full-Time MBA is the Gabelli School of Business’ flagship two-year program in management and leadership. Selectively enrolling only 75 students per year, the Full-Time MBA combines industry-inspired hands-on coursework, individualized attention, and extraordinary network development—all in the heart of New York City.

This is a true New York MBA.

Industry-Inspired Academics

The Gabelli School of Business Full-Time MBA program is led by a faculty director who—in addition to his highly regarded academic research—maintains strong ties to industry and continually adapts the MBA curriculum to meet the demands of today’s employers.

From the month-long Gabelli Launch orientation that begins the two-year sequence to the capstone Convergence Week simulation that draws on every ounce of management knowledge Gabelli MBAs have acquired, the Full-Time MBA curriculum is designed to over-prepare students for the challenges of the business world.

Full-time MBA students will:

  • Travel to Buenos Aires, Argentina, to act as consultants to nonprofits and NGOs within their first month of the program
  • Complete a curriculum that balances structure with independence, building on foundation courses in economics, statistics, accounting, finance, management, and strategy with individually chosen electives
  • Develop and defend their own conclusions about business ethics in a course called Markets, Business, and Society
  • In an applied project, work on a consulting team for a real business client or create a business plan and prototype for a new startup
  • Visit the offices of high-level executives whose real-world insight enhances the experience of attending business school in New York
