The Master of Business Administration (MBA) is designed to prepare leaders in an increasingly dynamic and global business environment. The MBA is offered by the College of Business Administration in full-time, evening, and executive formats.
MBA students have undergraduate preparation in business, engineering, sciences, liberal arts, law, technology, or other fields. Graduates advance in for-profit and not-for-profit organizations. Full-time MBA students may add internships and specializations in finance or organizational change. Significant financial assistance is available through a graduate assistantship program. The Professional MBA program allows working individuals to begin in any semester and offers classes two evenings per week. Depending upon their schedules, students generally complete the program in 23 months of part-time study.
The 18-month Executive MBA is designed specifically for professionals who want to advance as leaders and top managers, learn and share “Best Practices” with peers from the region’s top companies and organizations, interact with highly qualified faculty experts from all the business disciplines, and learn to think strategically and manage globally. Classes are held on select weekends (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday), and the program includes a study abroad experience in international leadership.
The Department of Accounting and Management Information Systems offers a program of study leading to the Master of Accountancy degree. The mission of the Master of Accountancy (MAcc) program is to build upon the base of knowledge obtained at the baccalaureate level and to further nurture the personal and professional development of those interested in graduate education in areas relevant to the practice of public or corporate accounting.
The department is committed to offering programs and a setting that attracts students as they choose among competing programs and offers an opportunity to specialize in information systems auditing and control, financial reporting and auditing, and taxation.
The Master of Science in Applied Statistics is offered jointly by the Department of Mathematics and Statistics and the Department of Applied Statistics and Operations Research. The program is designed to prepare students for direct entry into careers as statisticians in business, industry, or government, or for further study toward a Ph.D. degree in statistics.
The Master of Arts in Economics program prepares students for careers in business or government or for further graduate study in economics. The program is designed to train students to function as professional economists and economic analysts in the corporate, government, and academic sectors.
Designed for performance managers, human resource and training professionals, owners of small businesses, consultants, and recent college graduates, the Master of Organization Development degree program is offered in an executive (part-time) format. Our mission is to educate individuals interested in systematically transforming organizations into world-class competitors.
