Master of Business Administration

Dr. Jennifer Plantier, Program Director

The MBA is a 45-hour program open to qualified students with bachelor’s degrees, regardless of

major. For a student with an undergraduate degree in business, nine hours of coursework may be

waived: ECON 6330, BSAD 6330, and BSAD 6310.

The objective of the Master of Business Administration (MBA) program is to prepare managers

and leaders to manage successfully in a dynamic business environment. More specifically, the

program provides advanced study in all functional areas of business: accounting, management

information systems, economics, finance, marketing, and management.

In addition, the program is designed to help students further develop and refine such important

broad skills and abilities as analytical thinking, problem solving, computer applications,

communications, and teamwork. Through lectures, papers, simulations, seminars, and case studies,

the graduate student will enhance critical thinking and problem-solving skills while solving real

world managerial problems.
