Master's in Business Administration

The four-semester program is designed for students who wish to combine their liberal arts, fine arts, science, or engineering background with business to create a dynamic career track. While no previous business coursework is required, a working knowledge of calculus and well-developed English and computer skills are very beneficial.

The program provides a generalist perspective, and the flexibility of the curriculum allows you to concentrate in one of five career specializations: Finance, Leadership Studies, Supply Chain Management, Management Information Systems, and Marketing.
