While many students choose to have a specific area of concentration, those who would like more flexibility in selecting courses may choose the General Business concentration instead. With this option the student is free to choose elective courses from among the several different areas of study within the graduate school of business without concern for whether these courses satisfy the requirements of a specific concentration. Students completing the General Business concentration must: have at least four courses with grades sufficient to earn credit in a concentration; and meet the college residency requirement for this four course concentration.
Students will receive credit for a concentration course with a grade of C- or better. Any grade lower than a C- in a concentration course does not count as credit toward the degree and the student must repeat the course or an approved substitute. In addition, a 2.0 cumulative GPA is required for the concentration courses. Academic and faculty advisors are available to assist students in choosing courses.
If a student does not declare a specific concentration, the student will be assigned the General Business concentration at the beginning of the program.
