MBA Program FAQs

What courses can I take in the MBA program?

Students can choose from a variety of courses specific to their interests in the field of business administration. Course topics include strategic resources management, organizational leadership, managerial finance, strategic marketing, and operations management.

What concentrations may I specialize in?

Choose either the general MBA, which provides an enhanced breadth and depth of foundational topics in business management, or one of five concentrations: construction management, energy management, finance, organizational leadership, project management, or supply chain management and logistics.

Do MBA students conduct a major research project?

MBA students who choose to enroll in one of the three concentrations (i.e., project management, finance, or organizational leadership) conduct a major research project, called the Independent Research Project, over the course of three semesters as a degree requirement. This project utilizes the student’s employer, or other approved organization (a multi-national corporation is preferred), as a case study, and builds upon foundational material presented in the program’s courses. Students have the opportunity to put theory into practice, and offer real solutions to business challenges. An executive summary of this project is presented in person during residency.
