Summer Business Institute

Designed and taught by Massey faculty members, the Summer Business Institute completes all prerequisite course work for Massey’s MBA programs and courses including:

  • Accounting I
  • Accounting II
  • Finance
  • Microeconomics
  • Macroeconomics
  • Statistics
  • Calculus, or other math class higher than college Algebra

SBI courses are completed over 12 weeks in the summer and students attend classes two week nights per week and on Saturdays during the program. Students who complete the Summer Business Institute hit the ground running, fully prepared for success in Massey’s MBA program. All SBI students must first be admitted to a Massey Graduate School of Business MBA program.

Face-to-face instruction begins in the second half of May and continues through early August (approximately 12 weeks), with all classes taught by the award-winning Massey MBA faculty. Class sessions are fast-paced, highly interactive and designed to equip participants with the most relevant business concepts necessary for success as they begin MBA studies. Classes are scheduled to meet the needs of working professionals and are held on Tuesday & Thursday evenings (6:15 PM – 9:00 PM) & Saturdays (9:00 AM – 5:00 PM).

SBI is the only AACSB-accredited program of its kind in Tennessee that combines a work-friendly, fast-track approach to preparing non-business majors for Massey’s MBA programs.
