This approach allows students to make the most of their time, their learning, their network, and their investment. Blended Learning program cohorts—groups of students that form a tight-knit team throughout the program— begin in March and September. Given the structure of the program, students may participate in virtual sessions and online collaboration from all around the world, and easily attend face-to-face sessions from across the country. Face-to-face sessions are available at two campus locations, Wellesley and San Francisco.

"The students in this program are tremendous, and we are pleased with this ranking reflecting their success, especially when compared to other schools that also have a portion of online teaching, coursework, and exams."
