Business Administration

Professor Michael McCall, Director of the M.B.A. Program,

The master of business administration degree program provides a broad view of organizational performance from the perspective of general management.

The M.B.A. curriculum consists of 35 credits of graduate study, offered in 11 consecutive months. M.B.A. candidates complete nine required courses, five of which are in the functional areas of accounting, finance, management, marketing, and operations management. Two required courses address the challenge of managing in a global economy and the integration of functional knowledge in strategic decision making. The two remaining required courses analyze the historical development, present characteristics, and future projections for selected industries. Candidates complete the program by taking three additional elective courses.

Classes begin in late August and continue through the first summer session, which ends in late June. Most classes meet from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. Every few years, courses that are usually scheduled during the day are offered in the evening for the benefit of part-time students.

The curriculum builds on the functional-area knowledge and skills acquired in baccalaureate accounting and business majors by applying them in the context of problems encountered by general management. In addition, students learn to integrate the various functions in firm-level analyses, problem solving, and decision making.

The coursework blends the formal study of management and its underlying theories with applications to real and simulated management situations. Case studies and class projects, as well as experience in the school's trading room, enable students to adapt theoretical knowledge to the practice of management.
