This two-year program is for professionals interested in enhancing their understanding of business disciplines and applying them to making decisions. Beginning each fall, the cohort-based program consists of 30 credit hours of coursework.

Program Admission Requirements

A Faculty Admissions Committee, chaired by the Director of the MBA Program, will review all applications. Admission to the Online MBA program is competitive, and only top candidates will be considered. (These requirements represent minimum applicant qualifications.) The committee will review all admission documents to determine if the applicant can successfully complete the program.  The EMBA admission requirements include:

  • Five or more years of progressive, full-time professional work experience including three or more years in a supervisory/managerial role

  • Official transcripts from all institutions attended sent directly to the MBA Office. The MBA Program Office will perform a transcript analysis once all transcripts are received in order to determine if the applicant has fulfilled all prerequisites.
