Fast-Trak MBA Program

The Fast-Trak MBA program incorporates innovative ideas and a real-world experience in a balanced approach to graduate education. The cohort class structure offers a lock-step, planned curriculum in an executive setting. Members of each class begin the program together sharing the same educational experience and taking the same courses in the same sequence throughout the year. Through this approach, effective student teams are developed which often grow into long-term friendships.

Why choose the Fast-Trak MBA Program?

Students enrolled in the Fast-Trak double degree program must successfully complete all components of coursework delivered by NIU and the partner University, either IEA or ENAE, to be awarded both degrees.
