Concentrations: A Part-Time MBA with focus

In addition to the high-level business knowledge you’ll learn through the MBA core curriculum, you can pursue up to two concentrations - a primary and secondary concentration – allowing you to focus on specific industries. You can select up to two of the concentrations, or create a customized concentration that's right for you:

Want to Customize your MBA Concentration?

The Customized MBA is available to MBA candidates on a case-by-case basis and is subject to course availability. The process for selecting a customized concentration:

  1. Look through the course offerings/curriculum and come up with a written proposal of courses (must be a minimum of 15 credits). In the written proposal explain how the proposed customized concentration will help you achieve your career objectives.
  2. Submit the written proposal to the department chair(s) responsible for the area most closely related to the customized concentration. The faculty will review it (make adjustments if necessary) and must sign the proposal giving their approval.
  3. If the faculty approve the proposal, you will then need to submit the proposal to the Office of MBA Student Services for degree credit approval and advisement purposes.

Proficiency Requirements

Once admitted, the Office of Graduate Admissions will let you know whether calculus and/or statistics are required.

As an admitted student, you can fulfill this requirement in one of two ways: through prior undergraduate coursework or by passing a testing module, neither of which earn credit toward your degree. You won’t be certified until proficiency requirements are completed.
