The M.B.A. in Management degree is designed for middle-level professionals and others seeking advancement in their management careers.

Today’s leading managers must be more than intellectually well-rounded. They must have the capacity to understand and appreciate the impact of their decisions on society—and the role that society plays in forming their decisions. They must also know how to communicate effectively, and they must possess a thorough understanding of the legal, environmental, technological, and social issues that affect an organization.

The program’s foundation core and advanced core components will ground you in contemporary business issues and fundamentals. Our students integrate leading business knowledge, skills, and competencies. Students working toward their degree have the option to specialize in one of the traditional areas of business or pursue a more general approach by spreading their advanced elective course of study over several functional areas.

Degree Requirements
The M.B.A. degree requires 33 credits of advanced core courses in business and specialization courses/business electives. Depending on a student’s previous academic preparation and background, certain prerequisite and foundation core courses may be necessary. This flexibility is intended to accommodate students with varied academic backgrounds, including those who have already earned an advanced degree and are now seeking to earn a graduate business degree. The M.B.A. curriculum meets state, regional, and national accreditation standards.

Foundation Core (Common Body of Knowledge) (24 credits) The foundation core, or common body of knowledge component of courses, is designed to provide a solid foundation in each of the functional areas of business: economics, finance, legal and ethical environment, management, management information systems, marketing, and statistics. It also teaches the student to integrate material across the different disciplines. These courses are the "building blocks" for the more advanced courses. Depending on a student's prior academic preparation and background, some or all of the following foundation core courses may be required.

Prerequisite Courses To ensure that all students possess the basic skills and abilities necessary for graduate business study, some students may need to take certain prerequisite courses (up to 9 credits) depending upon their academic preparation and background.

Specializations and Electives (9 credits)
Depending upon interests and career objectives, students can make the focus of their M.B.A. program as broad or as narrow as they wish. Those seeking a broader course of study can select from advanced elective courses that span the entire spectrum of the business curricula. Specialization is available to those whose interests lie in one of the more traditional management spheres. Students opting for a specialization choose their electives from a prescribed list of courses relating to that specific discipline.
