Course of Study

The University of Wyoming campus MBA program is a 2-year program comprised of 59 credit hours of coursework specific to the track being pursued. Regardless of degree track, all students will complete the MBA core curriculum, the summer experiential learning project, and the outdoor leadership experience. 

Pre-Term:

Students will be required to take a pre-term assessment to determine their proficiency in quantitatively-based subjects. Deficiencies in these subject areas will require completion of a short foundational course (approximately 20 hours of time required to complete each course). Addressing potential deficiencies prior to beginning the MBA core curriculum will ensure that all students are equipped for success in their subsequent studies.

Students will also participate in a one to two week team building orientation seminar prior to the start of their fall coursework.

Fall 1 (16 credit hours):

  • Financial Accounting (3 credit hours)

  • Business Research Methods (3 credit hours)

More about previous projects can be found here.

Students will also participate in an Outdoor Leadership Experience. One week will be spent in the Wind River Mountains where the goal is to improve leadership competence and to focus on teamwork. What is learned in the wilderness will be discussed and brought back to be applied to everyday life in a business setting.
