Return to: Degree Programs

The College of Business Administration, through the departments of Accounting, Economics and Finance, Information and Decision Sciences, and Marketing and Management, offers a Master of Business Administration degree. The MBA degree program is accredited by AACSB International, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. The objective of the MBA program is to give students the opportunity to prepare for executive careers in business or in institutions that use business techniques and policies in management and administration. The program meets this objective by being broad in nature and aimed at general competence in overall management and administration. The majority of the coursework is devoted to a broad understanding of the environment, controls, and practices, which are
common to most institutions.

Specific Requirements for the Master of Business Administration Degree

  1. All students must complete 48 credit hours of Course of Study for the Master of Business Administration (MBA) which includes the 33 hours of the Required Graduate Core plus nine (9) credit hours of-MBA concentration electives plus 6 credit hours of approved graduate business electives. Courses in the Requires MBA Core can be substituted for other graduate courses in the same academic discipline if the MBA student has shown an appropriate understanding of the subject matter in previous undergraduate or graduate coursework.

  2. No more than three (3) hours in any concentration can be undergraduate courses available for graduate credit.
  3. Full-time MBA students are required to complete a program-approved internship prior to graduation.
