Because the required number of credit hours varies by program, the length of time it takes for someone to earn their master’s degree at Keller can vary, too. Our MBA program requires 16 courses, and our Specialized Master's Degree Programs require 13 - 15 courses. Depending on the program you select and the pace you prefer, you might take one or two classes per 8-week session.
You may be able to accelerate the journey to your master’s degree by using a combination of approved transfer credits, course waivers* and/or credit for professional training, and satisfy the requirements for up to six courses.
For example, if you’ve earned an undergraduate degree in business or a related field, you may have satisfied the requirements for up to four courses in a master’s degree program at Keller through our Master’s Advantage. To learn more about Master’s Advantage and other ways to earn credit for what you’ve already achieved, visit our Graduate Admissions page.
*Eligibility and application of course waivers varies based on the type of course waiver credit earned, the student’s enrolled location and/or the student’s state of residence. For more information, please refer to the Course Waiver section of the Keller academic catalog.
