MBA Curriculum Requirements
The MBA program consists of a total of 14 courses, ten of which are part of the MBA core curriculum. Each course within the MBA core curriculum relies on one or more experiential learning activities to equip students with problem-solving skills that will enable them to analyze and develop solutions that managers are likely to face. Many students are able to take what they learn in the classroom and immediately apply it to the workplace.
Depending upon your undergraduate major, students are able to request waivers for up to four courses in the core curriculum. In order to request a waiver, students must meet the grade requirements as determined by the course waiver, have taken the course within the last five years, and provide a copy of each course syllabus (see full policy here).
Of the remaining courses, three courses are part of your specialization and one of the courses you will take is the Capstone class. Please see individual program pages for specialization courses.
