These are the basis of an educational experience hallmarked by a high degree of flexibility and responsiveness to the scheduling and developmental needs of students. Courses are offered for two or three credit hours. Three credit hour courses meet for 16 weeks while two credit hour courses meet for seven weeks, thus allowing students the flexibility of completing three classes during the semester, but only attending two nights a week.
The total number of credit hours required to complete the MBA program varies from a minimum of 36 hours (all foundation skills waived with a general business concentration) to a maximum of 59 hours (all foundation skills and a 12 credit hour concentration).
The curriculum of the MBA program for working professionals consists of five components:
Ensure a solid foundation in traditional business disciplines and provide understanding of the business environment. These courses are prerequisites for core MBA courses and must be completed before taking the advanced studies. All foundation skills may be waived by successful completion of a waiver exam.
