The general MBA is intended for students who wish to pursue an interdisciplinary program. It affords students the most flexibility to customize their program according to their academic and professional interests. In contrast, the four-course major is available to students who wish a greater focus in one or two disciplines.
Required Courses (12 credits)
Students design their own program by selecting 12 credits of 9000-level courses. These must be chosen from departments offering courses in the MBA program (including interdisciplinary courses); courses designated PAF, COM, or ENG may not be selected. The combined total of required and elective courses (excluding the core) may not exceed three in any one major area (e.g., CIS, FIN). In the case of management (MGT) courses, the combined total of required and elective courses may not exceed three in any one of the following management areas: organizational behavior/human resource management, operations management, or entrepreneurship and small business management.
