The Carson College of Business Online MBA consists of 36 credits for those with a bachelor’s degree in business. If your degree is in another field, we offer up to 16 credit hours of foundational business coursework to ensure you have all the tools necessary to be successful in the program. Students with a non-business undergraduate degree who need five or more foundation courses may be eligible to earn a general business administration certificate on their way to earning an MBA.
Once you begin the MBA program, you’ll take seven 3-credit core courses, two 1-credit core courses, and three additional courses from your concentration or a pool of electives. You can opt for the general track or choose from four concentrations to focus your education on the subject matter that best fits your career objectives. The Online MBA experience concludes with a capstone course for an additional four credits. All coursework is entirely online and may be completed in as few as 22-29 months.
Note: The General Business Administration Certificate is comprised of seven courses. Students who have completed coursework equivalent to BA 500 and/or ECONS 555 may be eligible to have these courses waived under certain conditions.
Note: Each concentration is also offered as a nine-credit graduate certificate.
