About the Program

Jacksonville State University’s MBA program, accredited by AACSB-International since 1998, is designed to cover business fundamentals, while also addressing the international business environment and changing business technologies. The curriculum—which may be completed online—consists of 30 credit hours of coursework for the General MBA and 30 credit hours for the MBA – Accounting Concentration program. Students entering the program without an undergraduate degree in business could be required to complete up to 9 credit hours of foundation coursework. An evaluation of the undergraduate transcript(s) will determine the exact requirement for each student.

JSU’s College of Business and Industry has been named as one of the top business schools in the country by The Princeton Review. In 2009, we were rated as 2nd in the country for “opportunities for women.” We continue to receive positive national rankings and are also recognized for our efforts to maintain reasonable tuition rates. Our online tuition is considered one of the lowest of all AACSB-International schools offering an online MBA program.

We enjoy a diverse student body. Students enrolled in our program represent many countries, diverse ethnic backgrounds, and ages span from newly graduated students to those more seasoned professional men and women who are looking for an opportunity to move ahead either within their current organization or to move on to something new and exciting.

Admission materials are initially submitted to Graduate Studies. Admission to the MBA program involves an evaluation of the student's undergraduate degree GPA along with their GMAT score (minimum acceptable score is 400) where applicable. MBA students are advised by the MBA Director in the College of Business and Industry.
