Master of Business Administration
The School of Business' master of business administration (MBA) program is designed for both working adults and full-time students.
The MBA program provides individuals with a broad professional education and acquaints them with the theories, principles and strategies needed for successful careers in business. Revamped in 2014, the curriculum is fully reflective of the contemporary and dynamic domain of business practice. The focus of the new curriculum is explicitly placed on students developing their decisionmaking capabilities based on a foundation of core business functions and their interrelatedness. Integral parts of the curriculum include exposure to decision-making models, global business considerations, financial markets and analysis, leadership, organizational behavior and strategy.
Graduates are action-oriented and encouraged to think critically so that they can effectively and immediately apply the competencies and skills acquired in the MBA program to their organizations. Students also have the option of developing domain knowledge through participation in one of the three tracks offered: chartered financial analyst, health care management and supply chain management. Numerous electives are available through which students may customize their experience based on their own professional and other goals.
The MBA program can be completed on a part-time or full-time basis and is also available fully online. The program is a total of 46 credits. This includes a 28 credit core and 18 credits of electives. These flexible elective courses allow students to either focus on one area, creating a concentration within a specific discipline, or take courses across multiple business subject areas, enhancing a broad interdisciplinary perspective.
Electives are available in computer information systems, finance, health care management, international business, management and marketing. Online students can also take advantage of opportunities for an intensive, short term, three-credit international experience.
