Full-Time Cohort M.B.A.
The Full-Time M.B.A. is the Gabelli School of Business’ flagship two-year program in management and leadership. Selectively enrolling only 75 students per year, the Full-Time M.B.A. 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 M.B.A.
The Gabelli School of Business Full-Time M.B.A program is led by a faculty director who—in addition to her highly regarded academic research—maintains strong ties to industry and continually adapts the M.B.A. 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 Immersion Week simulation that draws on every ounce of management knowledge Gabelli M.B.A.s have acquired, the Full-Time M.B.A. curriculum is designed to over-prepare students for the challenges of the business world.
Full-time M.B.A. 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

One-on-one meetings with graduate academic advisers will be indispensable as you make decisions about whether to pursue a concentration or secondary concentration, and if so, which. Our advisers offer special expertise in navigating requirements and ensuring that your academic program matches your post-M.B.A. plans. The deadline for full-time M.B.A. students to determine your selected concentrations and notify your academic adviser of your selections is the end of the add/drop period for the fall semester of your second year of the full-time M.B.A. program. Consult your adviser for your deadline if you are completing the Professional M.B.A. program.
