The full-time integrated M.B.A. (FIMBA) targets recent business graduates looking to jump-start their careers. It provides a holistic view of the business organization through an integrated curriculum and a real-world business fellowship.
The FIMBA program is a degree of breadth and includes a prescribed and integrated curriculum. An undergraduate degree with a business major is required for admission. The program begins one summer semester and concludes the following summer semester. All costs, including travel, are included in a package of tuition and fees. Graduates will exit the program with an M.B.A. and valuable work experience.

The FIMBA serves recent graduates of business programs who have no, or little, work experience with a paid business fellowship, thereby making them more competitive in today's business world.
“The FIMBA program is a great way to continue your education without stopping your professional growth. Plus, if you're concerned about surviving financially while going to school full-time, FIMBA takes care of that for you; you work at least 20 hours a week in a guaranteed paid fellowship with an established, successful West Michigan company. The program is intensive because you are going to school full-time and working part-time with a GVSU partner company, but it is well worth it.”
