    I have been looking at an online MBA and had a question. I like the concept of breaking the 16 week term into two 7 week classes. That way as a working professional I only have to concentrate on one class at a time. I know that Arizona State and Washington State operate under this structure. What other online MBA programs have that structure instead of 2 classes for the 16 week term.

    for clarity sake....

    South University has 5.5 week classes and 11 week quarters. Students take 2 classes per quarter; usually one every 5.5 weeks. You can double up if you want too.

    NCU has 8 week classes and you can accelerate them to 4 weeks or so if you have a lot of time on your hands. You can also double up with advisor approval.

    Ashford has condensed, 6 week courses you take one at a time. They're not easy but they are fast.

    If you're looking for really short classes, there's also National University and Salem International University. Both of these schools have 4-week courses.

    You might take a look at American Military University American Public University System - Official Site - 877-755-2787. They have courses lasting 16 weeks, 8 weeks, and 4 weeks. What I'm not sure about is whether all programs have all three options or whether the number of weeks in a course is specific to certain disciplines.

    Which Online MBA Programs have the single class structure

    Thank you for the feedback. To be more precise, I am looking for programs that are associated with major well known colleges that will have a solid reputation nationwide and even internationally.

    So far the only 3 I have found are Northeastern, Arizona State, and Washington State.

    Thank you again for your feedback.

    Was in St. Louis this week and noticed a billboard for Missouri Baptist University. They have an MBA program with 8 week terms, no necessary pre-reqs, and you can transfer in 6 grad credits regardless of subject. This is the most flexible MBA I've seen other than Webster U, which lets you earn a sequential MBA (if you already have a Master's) with only 21 core credits and the MBA pre-reqs. MBU is RA, but not ACBSP or AACSB accredited. Anyway, looked interesting.

    There are 8 semesters/periods/time blocks or whatever you want to call them. They are 5.5 weeks each.

    Most of the courses offered in Mississippi State's online MBA are available in an 8 week format as well.

    If you want that much of flexibility, you need to pursue a course through distance learning. You can do this according to your convenient time.

    When you say "distance learning" and "flexibility", you probably mean "Self-paced"?
    In USA (at least), most online/distance programs are not self-paced, unless explicitly mentioned. Every course has a preset duration (usually either 4 or 8 weeks). The exceptions are schools like WGU, where you complete the course at your own pace.
