Class Schedules

The Elon M.S. in Management is structured to be an accelerated, 10 month, graduate program starting in fall and graduating the following spring. Classes are held one evening per week per class, giving you time to complete assignments and projects during the day. You will immediately begin pairing coursework in your selected concentration with the business core.

Professors make a priority of being accessible--they are responsive to email and will meet in person when needed.

For working professionals, you can complete Elon's M.S. in Management program in 2 years on the Professional Track or at your own pace.
