Students may choose a concentration in finance, marketing, or management. A concentration consists of 13 credit hours including the core course in the concentration area, two electives in the concentration area, and the 4-credit MBA 519 with special assignment in the concentration area.  A formal declaration of concentration is required at, or before, the completion of 18 credits.

Alternatively, students may choose to follow a general MBA curriculum and enroll in two electives that do not fall under a concentration area.

Students who are required to enroll in MBA 511 should note that this course satisfies one of the two required electives for a general MBA degree; however, it does not count toward any particular concentration. If a student wishes to pursue a concentration, a total of two electives in the specified area in addition to MBA 511 are required, bringing the total number of credits to 40.
