Program Requirements

MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS FOR THE MBA DEGREE

The MBA program consists of 30 semester hours of graduate business courses for the general program or 33 semester hours of graduate business courses for the accounting concentration, plus 24 semester hours of foundation courses for a total of 54 semester hours for the general program and 57 semester hours for the accounting concentration. A comprehensive examination is required of all candidates. 2011-2012 Graduate Bulletin 78

Foundation Courses:
Credit for foundation course work may be given for courses already completed as part of a baccalaureate degree. Students without adequate undergraduate preparation are required to complete the 24 semester hours of foundation business and economics courses listed below. The MBA Director will evaluate each student’s undergraduate course work to determine which foundation courses are required prior to the student taking MBA courses. The graduate GPA is computed on all graduate hours attempted. Although grades achieved on undergraduate foundation courses will not be included in the computation of the graduate GPA, a student must earn a grade of B or above in each of these specified, required courses if they are taken after the completion of the baccalaureate degree. 

  • MGT 504 Business Organization and Administration (3)
  • BA 500 Statistics and Quantitative Methods (3)
  • ACC 200 Principles of Financial Accounting (3)
  • EC 222 Principles of Macroeconomics (3)
  • FIN 301 Business Finance (3)
  • FIN 292 Legal and Social Environment (3)
  • CBA 390 Operations Management (3)
  • MKT 301 Principles of Marketing (3)

Students who have adequate undergraduate preparation or who have satisfied the foundation requirements may enroll in MBA courses, given that all individual course prerequisites are met. Students without adequate preparation will only be allowed to take only courses in fields of study in which the prerequisite course work has been completed.

Individuals who do not have a baccalaureate degree in a business field, but who have at least three years of prior mid-level management experience in an approved managerial position(s) may request that a portion of the foundation course work be waived. Students must document their managerial experience(s) and approval must be granted by the graduate committee of the CCBA. Students in this category must complete a total of 18 hours of the foundation course work, including BA 500,

EC 222, ACC 200, and FIN 301. The remaining six hours to be taken will be based on an evaluation by the MBA Director. For more information, contact the MBA Director, 110 Merrill Hall, phone 256-782-5778.

After completion of foundation course work, students may select either the general MBA or the MBA with an accounting concentration. The general MBA program is a total of 30 semester hours; the MBA with an accounting concentration is a total of 33 semester hours. 2011-2012 Graduate Bulletin 79
