The Mihaylo College of Business and Economics MBA program is designed to mirror the career goals of our students. With options to complete your program either full or part-time, the basic curriculum consists of ten foundation courses, four electives, and a capstone course. The foundation courses assure a complete understanding of the world marketplace while the concentration courses provide a particular area of focus. A highlight of our program is the strategy capstone class. Students operate in work teams completing a major consulting project with an area business. The learning experiences and environment of the MBA program has fostered a tradition of excellence with our students winning a cumulative 39 national awards from the National Small Business Institute’s case competition, placing in the top ten for 19 of the last 20 years, and placing in the region’s top three at the ACG Cup competition.
