Business Administration, M.B.A.

The Master of Business Administration requires a minimum of 36 graduate credit hours.
Coursework is available in the evening or online formats.
A one-year MBA is available to students who have completed the necessary foundational coursework.

Depending upon the student’s background, a course in accounting or statistics may be required. BUS-501, Survey of Business, will be required if the applicant’s GPA is below a 3.0 and/or if the applicant’s undergraduate degree was outside the area of business, however, credits earned for ACCT 509 and BUS 501 do not count toward graduate degree requirements.

Students must complete all Master of Business Administration Required Courses (27 credits) and select either a Concentration (12 credits) or the general MBA (9 credits).

NOTE: Students who complete a concentration in Accounting, Data Analytics, Cybersecurity, Health Administration, or Software Development and later choose to earn a second Master’s degree in their completed concentration area may only use 6 hours of credit toward fulfillment of requirements for the second degree. Students who complete the MBA degree may not later choose to earn a second Master’s degree in Management & Leadership and vice versa.
