Professional MBA Curriculum
Whether your background is in business or in another discipline, the structure of the Professional MBA program will allow you to meet your personal needs. The core curriculum emphasizes developing the specific expertise required for professional success and provides students with an understanding of the current business environment. Courses such as Creating Value, Business Process Management, and Leading Responsibly give students added skills that leaders today need and build off a foundation in the traditional areas of business.
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.
