Academic Calendar

Calwest University has a standard academic calendar of three semesters for its MBA degree program.

Semester 1: February 1 – April 30 (enrollment period 1 Dec – 31 Jan)
Semester 2: June 1 – August 31 (enrollment period 1 April – 31 May)
Semester 3: October 1 – December 31 (enrollment period 1 Aug- 30 Sept)




No enrollments will be accepted once semester starts.

Students need special permission from student administration to enroll after semester starts.

There is no deadline date for starting the DBA degree program.

Course credits will be earned on a semester equivalency basis.

Courses can be started at anytime after a student enrolls in a degree program.

The four compulsory 'Core Building Blocks" Tubeclasses courses that are compulsory in the MBA program at Calwest are:

  1. Business Ethics
  2. Global Issues
  3. Critical Thinking
  4. Philosophy

Students work at their own pace. The method of assessment is via an on-line examination or assignment when the students are confident that they are ready to be assessed. For on-line exams, these will be available automatically once all the Topic Quizzes have been completed.

Credits Earned in a Compressed Time Period

Due to the 24 hours per day, 7-days a week nature of a campus in the cloud, it is possible that students may learn at different paces; and some may be able to compress the time period in which they earn a degree. However, Calwest will not permit a program compression that enables students to complete in less than one year for a MBA degree. Special permission on a case by case basis will need to be obtained by students who wish to compress their courses in time periods less than this, and would usually pertain to those coming with significant credit for prior learning in an equivalent program.
