The School of Business offers two MBA programs to meet the needs of our students. The Full-Time MBA program is a STEM designated program that is offered on campus or online for students who have recently completed an undergraduate degree or for students who want an in-person MBA experience. For students who already have at least 3 years of full-time work experience, the Professional MBA (PMBA) program offers the flexibility of completing an MBA completely online on a part-time basis. 

Both programs emphasize the interrelatedness of core business functions, and students learn the theories, principles and strategies necessary to succeed in careers in business, government or nonprofit management. In the MBA, students build their knowledge and skills in areas related to data analytics, decision-making, global business considerations, financial markets and analysis, leadership, organizational behavior and business strategy.  

MBA courses are action-oriented, and students are encouraged to think critically so that they can effectively and immediately apply the competencies and skills acquired in the MBA program to their organizations. Numerous electives are available for students to customize their experience based on their own professional goals and interests. A full-time six-month cooperative work experience option is possible for students who seek an immersive learning experience with world-class businesses after completing at least 18 credit hours.
