Indiana University Southeast provides a Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) degree program for students interested in continuing their education in the field of business. Through the program, business professionals increase their breadth of knowledge, their ability to analyze business alternatives more thoroughly, and, ultimately, their opportunities for more challenging, responsible, and productive careers in the business community. Most M.B.A. students work in professional positions and pursue the M.B.A. degree on a part-time basis.The goals of the graduate business program are to increase the business professional's breadth of knowledge, to enhance the individual's ability to analyze business alternatives more thoroughly, and ultimately to enable that person to have a more productive career. These goals are achieved through a variety of activities that prepare students for accepting challenging and responsible positions in the business community.
To complete the 36 credit hours required for the M.B.A. degree in two years, students would take 6 credit hours during both the fall and spring semesters and 3 credit hours during each of the two summer sessions. Students who wish to exceed a normal course load must receive approval from the M.B.A. Policies Committee.
Normally, students complete degree requirements within no more than six years from the time they begin M.B.A. course work. In special circumstances, a student may be given permission to extend the study to the seventh year, but additional curriculum and degree requirements may be added. The M.B.A. program must be completed within seven years.

A minimum of 36 graduate credit hours, of which each course counts only once toward graduation unless the bulletin specifically states that the course may be repeated for credit,
