An in-depth analysis of the diverse theoretical and social issues confronting the modern business organization pervades the curriculum. A Graduate Curriculum Committee (consisting of the Provost, the Chairs and Directors of related disciplines, and a representative of the Curriculum and Educational Policies Committee) initiates curriculum modifications.
Students in the MBA Program may elect to specialize in the applied business, energy management, health systems administration, leadership/human resource management, finance, market development or project management by taking the appropriate electives.
