    It's possible to complete the B.A./M.B.A. program in five years. But it's challenging due to possible conflicts. It is more reasonable to complete the M.B.A. program in one calendar year. After satisfying the eight core required courses, as well as the three international business electives, a student will graduate from the M.B.A. program.
