About Areas of Emphasis:

You do not have to pursue an Area of Emphasis. A General Business MBA allows students to customize their degree by selecting any five (5) MBA electives.

 


Dual Emphasis:

Students may choose to pursue more than one Area of Emphasis. In cases where there is overlap a class may be counted toward more than one emphasis.

For example, the International Finance class can be used toward both the Finance and International Business Areas of Emphasis.

 


Transcript & Diploma:

Area(s) of Emphasis will be reflected on the student's transcripts. However, the diploma only reflects the degree, Master of Business Administration.

We are in the business of building successful futures. ™
