The MBA program was recently revised and the changes are pending approval of the New York State Education Department, effective spring 2017. The new MBA curriculum allows students the flexibility to design a program to suit their career objectives whether they are going part-time or full-time, whether or not they have an undergraduate business degree, and whether they are switching careers or advancing in their existing careers. Through advisement from the Office of Graduate Programs, the Graduate Career Management Center (GCMC), and academic departments prospective and current students would be informed of the potential career paths to which different combinations of courses could lead. Students will graduate with a general MBA with a concentration/specialization of their own design.
