Business Administration - Master of Business Administration (MBA)

The MBA program is a 32 credit-hour professional curriculum that requires 19 credits of core courses and 13 credits of electives. Depending on previous undergraduate coursework, students may be required to take an additional 15 credits of foundation courses. There is no thesis requirement for the MBA program; instead, students must complete an integrated project course that is part of the core course requirements.

Full-time students with a previous undergraduate degree in business can complete the accelerated program in one year. Part-time students can earn their degree in two to five years.  For those who do not have an undergraduate degree in business, UM provides the required prerequisites in five online courses.
