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:
- Enterprise Resource Planning
- Healthcare Management
- Human Resources
- International Business
- Operations Management
The standard MBA is comprised of the cornerstone and capstone courses, 7 core courses, and 3 advanced electives. The flexible option, on the other hand, allows you to trade up to 3 of the 7 core courses for other advanced electives of your choice. With this option, you can tailor the MBA curriculum to your specific needs/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 flexible 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 international elective, which are noted with an asterisk.
