54 vs. 37 credits for an MBA

To get an MBA from Temple University Fox School of Business, you need to complete 54 credits. Similarly, to get an MBA from Drexel University LeBow School of Business, you need to complete 51 credits.

Now, to get an MBA from the University of Massachusetts Amherst Isenberg School of Business, you only need to complete 37 credits of coursework. Why the difference of credits? Each of these business schools are accredited by the AACSB, so we know that they're delivering quality education. What's interesting about the UMass Amherst program is this: their full-time MBA is 55 credits, but the part-time MBA is only 37 credits. Here's the catch. If you didn't take many business courses during your undergraduate studies, you'll need to take "Foundations of Business" as a pre-requisite for the part-time MBA program. Alternatively, you can opt out of the Foundations of Business by following the ACPE (American College of Physician Executives) curriculum.
