Business School (MBA)

Bates students and alumni interested in pursuing business school typically decide between pursuing a Master’s in a specialized area, such as finance, accounting or marketing or pursuing a traditional two-year M.B.A. degree.

2+2 programs offer deferred admission for college students  https://www.hbs.edu/mba/admissions/application-process/Pages/student-applicants.aspx

In addition, there are Executive M.B.A. programs for professionals who wish to fit their studies into current careers while continuing to work, often full-time. https://www.usnews.com/best-graduate-schools/top-business-schools/executive-rankings
