4+1 MBA Program

Plymouth State has launched a new in-person cohort for the MBA in General Management. It is a one year intensive cohort designed for all students. You do not need a business degree or background.

While this program has been set up for current PSU students who will be completing their bachelor’s degree in May of each year, it is also open to anyone who wishes to complete the MBA program through an intensive face-to-face format on campus.

Most classes will be delivered in-person through small classes on our Plymouth, NH campus. You will travel through the courses together, allowing for a personal and friendly learning environment, where you will work closely with our experienced faculty who offer a wide array of business expertise.

Experiential Learning – You will learn by doing, playing a strategic managerial role in projects with real businesses. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to integrate your own business or start-up ideas into classwork making the program relevant and individualized for your personal career goals.

Non-Business Disciplines – Even if you have no business background, Plymouth’s MBA program will work for you. We offer two preparatory online classes taken before the cohort begins to provide you the necessary foundation and knowledge to be successful.

PSU Seniors – if you are a current PSU student who is on track to complete your bachelor’s degree in the spring, you can take up to 6 credits that can count as electives for your bachelor’s degree and as graduate credit toward the MBA program. Tuition would be assessed at the undergraduate rate and you are able to use your UG financial aid.

  • Non-Business majors would take the two foundation classes online during Spring 2021
  • Business majors should talk with their advisor or contact Dr. Chen Wu for possible spring graduate classes to take if you have room for electives in your current program.

For more information, please contact Dr. Chen Wu at cwu@plymouth.edu
