MBA/MAcc Electives

Second year full-time MBA students, Flex MBA and MAcc students may register for MBA electives. During the second year in the full-time MBA program, in addition to the required second year courses, and two six-credit hour CAMs, students are able to select 9 (or more) credit hours of electives. Because the MBA degree connotes breadth of study, we encourage the desire to balance a concentration with the need to broaden one’s perspectives in the world of business. A student wishing to take more than 15 hours of elective courses in a specific area must receive approval from the Program Director. Electives are grouped into seven areas. Availability of electives is dependent upon faculty resources. Every effort is made to accommodate student requests. By the end of add/drop, it is very rare for a student not to have his schedule of preference.
