The mission of the Master of Business Administration (MBA) is to prepare leaders for business and civic engagement through an employer-focused curriculum.
The Master of Business Administration (MBA) program is a 30-semester-hour program modularized into 5, 6-credit courses combining synergistic business topics. The format is designed to provide working adults with an opportunity to study the concepts and decision-making tools that support advancement in business-oriented fields. Students will have a Capstone strategy course in their last academic semester and complete a Comprehensive Business Project designed in conjunction with the student’s employer and faculty member.
MBA Transfer Credit Policy
Students can transfer in up to 6 credits of previous graduate coursework from an accredited institution into the MBA program as long as the previously earned credits coincide with one of the 6-credit modules. Coursework must be within the previous 5 years and with a B or better.
