The online MBA offers a Flex* curriculum that requires 36 semester credit hours (exclusive of any foundation modules that are stipulated on your Letter of Acceptance). Currently, you can opt for our General Online MBA, or choose from multiple specializations:
- Business Analytics
- Enterprise Resource Planning
- Healthcare Management
- Human Resources
- International Business
- Operations Management
The standard MBA is comprised of the cornerstone and capstone courses, seven core courses, and three advanced electives. The Flex* option, on the other hand, allows you to trade up to three of the seven core courses for other advanced electives of your choice. With this option, you can tailor the MBA curriculum to your specific needs or interests while still gaining an in-depth understanding of the core business functions. Note that the MBA degree requires 36 credit hours regardless of whether you choose the standard MBA or the Flex* option.
General MBA students must choose their electives from at least two different functional areas. Students opting for a specialization must choose at least 9 credit hours from their concentration area. All students must select at least one of the international electives, which are noted with an asterisk.
