The principal objective of the Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) Program is to advance the quality of business management. The program provides advanced management education in an environment that encourages students to extend their leadership capabilities. It enables students to gain broad managerial skills and to develop specialized expertise in a business discipline that best suits their career aspirations.
Degree Requirements for the MBA
To qualify for the M.B.A. degree, each candidate must:
1. Meet all general requirements of the University for a master’s degree and complete the program within seven years of first enrollment in an M.B.A. graduate course. If the thesis option is selected, the thesis must be completed within five years of its start and within the seven-year period.
2. Complete or receive credit for a minimum of 12 credits of foundation courses. No grade lower than “C” will be accepted. Required foundation courses will be determined by the Office of Graduate Student Programs. Students will be notified of these and other requirements on admission.
3. Complete 40 credits of required and elective courses with a GPA of 3.0 or better. Any grade below a “C” is typically considered a failure and the course must be retaken. No more than two courses or 6 credits of M.B.A. graduate work can be transferred from other accredited institutions. Any additional transfer credit may be accepted only by petition.
4. Successfully complete GEB 6215 requirements.
