Registration Policies

M.B.A. courses are primarily intended for matriculated students who have been admitted to the M.B.A. program. Other degree­ seeking students and M.B.A. alumni may request permission to register for courses on a space­-available basis.

Audit: Required M.B.A. core courses cannot accommodate auditors. Other degree-­seeking students and M.B.A. alumni may request permission from the instructor to audit M.B.A. electives.

Part­-Time and Online M.B.A. Requirements

Part-­time (evening) and online students typically begin the program in the fall term, although January admission with a reduced course load may be possible. The degree is comprised of ten required core courses and six electives. ADMN 982 Strategic Management: Decision Making is the capstone experience. Students may petition to waive up to three core courses. A waiver is typically granted if the student possesses a major (five to six courses from an AACSB­ accredited institution) in a core area earned within five years of matriculation, e.g., a student with a major in finance may petition to waive the M.B.A. core course in finance. The program is designed to permit students who begin in the fall to complete the degree in less than two years, although a relaxed pace is also possible. Students have up to six years to complete the curriculum.
