DeSales MBA Program Recognized as Largest in Pennsylvania

by Vanessa Williams May 14, 2019

DeSales University’s Master of Business Administration program was recently recognized by the Central Pennsylvania Business Journal as the largest MBA program in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

Serving nearly 750 students, DeSales typically offers between 40-50 classes during its 12-week sessions both online, in FLEX format, and on campus. Despite the program’s size, DeSales MBA classes are relatively small with classes averaging 12, but no more than 25, students.   

DeSales MBA’s part-time program remains popular because of its rolling admissions and flexible model. Students are able to start and pause their studies at any time within a seven-year period, proceeding at their own pace, rather than restricted by a cohort. Sessions, which are offered in standard twelve-week increments, as well as six and eight-week mini-mesters, allow students to progress at their own pace as their schedule allows, an important feature for those who are often balancing full-time work, family obligations, and school.

In existence for more than 25 years, the DeSales MBA program continues to seek ways to expand its offerings to provide students the flexibility necessary to maintain the work-life balance they are accustomed to while pursuing their degree.
