Course Registration

There are some great perks to being a graduate student at the University of Louisville College of Business, one of which is that you will never have to navigate through a confusing and time-consuming registration process.

Our enrollment coordinator, and will register you for your classes each semester. As soon as your registration is processed, you will be able to see your first semester courses in ULink, and the courses can be viewed in Blackboard.  

The first registrations for Fall semester will happen sometime around June 30. If you are admitted July 1 or later, your registration will be processed once your deposit is received.  Just keep an eye on ULink.

Cohort Information

You have been assigned a Full-Time MBA Cohort (Cohort A or Cohort B), and your course assignment will depend upon your cohort assignment. Your cohort assignment appears on your admissions letter. Contact us if you don’t know which cohort you are enrolled in.


The curriculum is what we call “lock step,” which means that you and your cohort classmates will take your core courses together and in a particular order.  All Full-Time MBA classes, for all cohorts, take place each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday evening from 6:00-9:30 p.m. 

Each semester is broken down into three academic mini-terms, and you will take three classes in each mini-term. 

Fall Term Break Down

  • Term 1: August 9 – September 10
  • Term 2: September 20 – October 22
  • Term 3: October 25 – December 3

Because we know that this can be confusing until you get the hang of the schedule, we have posted a break -down of your first mini term courses on Blackboard — including a course description and a link to faculty bios. Once you are in Blackboard, look for the document FTMBA Cohort Class Schedule

You will receive additional information about the curriculum and order of courses at Orientation.

Visit the online course catalog for the full Full-Time MBA curriculum.

Additional Initiatives (Electives, Certificates, and International Travel)

For those of you interested, you may utilize your elective courses to apply towards one of our graduate certificates in Distilled Spirits Managerial Analytics.  As long as you complete the certificate requirements while you are enrolled in your MBA program, there will be no additional charge to you for the certificate credential.  Again, once the Fall semester begins, you will receive all of the information you need to know to apply for a certificate credential.

In the Spring semester, all students take Foundations of the Global Economy and have the option to travel on a 10-day global immersion with fellow graduate students and faculty.
