Full-time MBA Advising

Academic Advisor

The academic advisor for all Full-time MBA students is Sarah Pickel. You can find contact information and instructions for scheduling an advising session on the Academic Advising main page.

Curriculum Requirements

The Full-time MBA Program requires students to complete 56 credit hours of MBA courses.  This combination of required core classes, concentration area courses, and electives provides students with the basics but also the ability to explore your interests and career aspirations.  Students should plan to complete this program in 2 years, or four semesters.

It is important that your program begin with the fundamental courses and build to the more advanced ones. Therefore the course sequence focuses on core classes during the first semester and then gives you the opportunity to delve deeper into your concentration area in your remaining three semesters.

The Full-time MBA Program announced new curriculum requirements for students starting Fall 2016 or later, as outlined below.  Students starting prior to Fall 2016 should adhere to the graduation requirements under which you started the program, also outlined below.
