The Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree is a graduate professional program that emphasizes the breadth of preparation in the various competencies required of business executives. The MBA program is ideally suited not only for individuals with undergraduate degrees in business but also for individuals with undergraduate degrees in other fields who have career goals that demand the competitive edge of quality graduate education in managerial decision-making.
The applicant to the master of business administration program must have a bachelor’s degree; however, the degree need not be in business administration. Applicants who are graduates of non-business programs are also encouraged to apply. An applicant is assigned an advisor soon after acceptance into the MBA program and should meet with the advisor to prepare a program plan outlining the courses needed for the MBA degree.
The admissions decision is based on a review of the application documentation including work experience, academic performance, references and written statement of purpose.
A GMAT or GRE is not required but will be accepted as an additional source to review. Work, as well as academic references and a quality statement of purpose, are critical to an effective evaluation.
The MBA degree is conferred on a student who has successfully completed 36 credit hours of required and specialization courses as listed on the student’s approved Graduate Program Plan.
