Course Requirements for the MBA Program

Concentrations and Electives

In addition to the required core courses, students have nine electives (36 credit hours) they can use to take courses in a specific area of interest.  These electives are typically used by students to select one or more concentrations in the area(s) that offer the knowledge, skills, and abilities that best fit the student’s educational needs and interests. Students with an undergraduate degree in a business subject area may have fewer required electives.
 
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 all of their elective courses from several different areas of study within the Kellstadt Graduate School of Business.
 
If a student does not indicate a specific concentration of interest in the application for admission the student will be assigned to the general business concentration.

Courses may be waived, i.e., excused without additional course work required, if the student has previously completed equivalent course work with a grade of C or better.  Professional experience may not be considered in meeting academic requirements.  The interpretation, evaluation and final decision of course waivers is the prerogative of the Kellstadt Graduate School of Business.
