Full Curriculum


The Master of Business Administration (MBA) program prepares students in the functional areas of business enabling them to develop managerial skills necessary to be effective in a wide variety of business environments. The program is designed for students interested in entering or advancing their careers in business. This 30 credit hour program focuses on the content areas that current research of managerial competencies, as well as nationally recognized graduate business standard evaluations, have identified: management, human capital management, business law, organizational leadership, economics, accounting, quantitative business analysis, operations management, corporate finance, marketing, and strategic management. Students can develop additional expertise in a particular concentration area by completing 12-15 credits in courses that culminate in the award of a graduate certificate, which will be recorded on the student's transcript.
