Professional MBA Curriculum
Today, professionals face a changing business environment that demands continuous learning to stay relevant. Our program is designed to prepare working professionals for the next phase of their career – whether it’s time to accelerate a career or explore new possibilities.
FOUNDATION Courses (five courses)
These courses build an understanding of business fundamentals, to help prepare students for core course work. Those with the right background can waive the foundation courses. Three courses are waived without replacement, while two are applied as electives.

ELECTIVES (four to six courses)
Customize the MBA to your academic interests or career goals by focusing electives in one area of study, to form a concentration. This approach is ideal for students looking to increase their depth in a specific field. Eight formal concentrations include:
- Business Analytics
- Economics of Financial Markets
- Information Systems and Technology
- Law and Taxation
Students can also forego a concentration and select a series of courses to match their interest and career needs.
