The difference between Strategy 1 and Strategy 1/SDM: Strategy 1 is designed for students that entered the SOM in September 2009 or later. The Strategy 1/SDM section was designed for returning students in process BEFORE September 2009. The weekend after the MLK holiday in January has been held for the final section of Strategy1/SDM. The difference is that Strat 1 is designed for brand new MBA students with no coursework yet and the Strat 1/SDM section was designed for students with significant coursework already completed!
Registration Opened June 16th! Fall
