The MBA Curriculum
At the beginning of Fall 2016, a new curriculum was introduced. This video highlights details that have already been successfully implemented.
One of the most important aspects of your MBA experience is the classes you will take over the next few years. Knowing your curriculum requirements is essential to your success in completing your MBA. Students should become familiar with these requirements and academic policies, and can work with an advisor to map out a plan that meets their learning objectives for the program while meeting the program’s requirements for graduation. Refer to your program’s academic advising page for more information on those requirements.
