Master of Business Administration (BUS MGT MBA)
MASTER OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION • 30 CREDITS • BUS MGT MBA
The Master of Business Administration (MBA) program prepares students in the functional areas of business enabling them to develop managerial skills necessary to be effective in a wide variety of business environments. The program is designed for students interested in entering or advancing their careers in business. This 30 credit hour program focuses on the content areas that current research of managerial competencies, as well as nationally recognized graduate business standard evaluations, have identified: management, human capital management, business law, organizational leadership, economics, accounting, quantitative business analysis, operations management, corporate finance, marketing, and strategic management. Students can develop additional expertise in a particular concentration area by completing 12-15 credits in courses that culminate in the award of a graduate certificate, which will be recorded on the student’s transcript.
Students who have a 2.75 cumulative GPA in a bachelor’s degree in business or a business related field will not be required to complete the Foundations of Business courses.
Students without an undergraduate degree in accounting, finance or a business related area must take the foundational courses to prepare them to enter into the MBA program. All prospective students are encouraged to speak with an admissions representative to determine whether they are eligible for prior learning credit based on their professional background.
The Foundations of Business courses for non-business undergraduate majors include:
ACCT510 Fundamentals of Accounting Principles and Concepts
