The Master of Business Administration (MBA) program is designed to prepare individuals for professional careers in management and to provide educational enrichment for experienced professionals seeking a broader management perspective. The faculty consists largely of professional practitioners whose academic credentials are further enhanced by the level of their personal accomplishments. Their experience provides the student with a valuable balance between theory and application. The MBA program in the School of Graduate Studies is an accelerated program. The schedule consists of five 9-week sequences per year. An Advanced Certificate in Business (ACB) is also available. The Advanced Certificate of Business (ACB) strengthens the academic credentials of managers who hold an MBA degree. To accommodate the ongoing needs for professional development, the program will update, enhance, and expand the executive's knowledge and expertise. To complete the certificate requirements, students must complete five MBA electives. Students may design their own programs, either specializing in a particular area or choosing from several areas. All courses must be completed within five years, and an overall GPA of 3.0 must be earned.
