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.
