To earn a Master of Business Administration degree, students must complete 10 core courses in five areas: Accounting, Management, Finance, Management Information Systems and Marketing Management. Additionally, students must take two graduate business electives for a total of 36 credit hours.
Students may be able to transfer up to two graduate courses (six credit hours) with a grade of B or better from other accredited graduate programs with approval from the program coordinator. Courses accepted for transfer to the MBA program must have been earned at a college or university that is recognized by a regional accrediting body authorized by the U.S. Department of Education.
Students must submit evidence of a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution, and have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or better. In addition, students must take the GMAT. Students can also pursue an alternative entry into the program that does not require taking the GMAT exam. They will need an undergraduate GPA of 2.75 or better and three to five years of professional experience where they have had managerial and budget responsibility for a cost or profit center within an organization. Approvals will be based on evaluation of a resume and/or a two page summary of professional experience and will be made on a case by case basis.
