Plan of Study

The Degree Program consists of three phases: core courses, required courses for general MBA, and electives. The program effectively requires that all graduate students complete a minimum of 48 graduate credit hours (27 hours from Phase I, 9 from Phase II, and 12 from Phase III).

Phase I: Core Courses
Core courses are designed to provide a background in fundamental managerial tools for decision making. In addition, students gain an initial exposure in the major functional areas of management.

Phase II: Required Courses for General MBA
Courses provide the facts and decision-making skills needed to function in the general framework of business and management. These courses are outlined in Phase II of the program.

Phase III: Electives
Electives are described in Phase III of the program. Elective courses may be used to gain flexibility in course choice or to acquire greater depth in a chosen field.
