Accelerated Graduate Programs

South University’s Accelerated Graduate Programs are based on the philosophy that qualified students seeking a graduate education should have the opportunity to learn in a supportive environment from outstanding faculty in a format that meets their personal needs. The Accelerated Graduate Programs at South University are structured for students with busy lives that might be changing careers, starting a new career or advancing their position within an existing career.

The accelerated, 12-month programs are built for motivated individuals who believe that education doesn’t have to stop when their life or career starts, and students should have opportunities to seek the level of education that can support their personal goals.

The 12-month graduate programs are intensive, with an entire graduate education presented in a compressed time frame, so students should consider the discipline necessary to meet program requirements. However individuals able to meet deadlines in their everyday life and career should be able to meet the demands of the 12-month curriculum structure. The program format is built to provide students with both faculty interaction through “smart” classrooms and industry-utilized video conferencing technology and the convenience of online learning.

The Accelerated 12-month MBA and Accelerated, 12-month Healthcare Administration MBA programs help students with existing backgrounds in business and health care to develop a greater understanding of the concepts and organizational structures within their industries, however our programs are designed to be accessible. Students from a variety of educational backgrounds and abilities are able to fully participate and excel in our programs.
