MBA Program & Curriculum Overview
Master of Business Administration Degree – Stetson University
In the Stetson MBA program, you are not just a number. We know each student by name and are able to assist you on an individual basis throughout your time with us. In addition to receiving individual attention from program administrators, you will enjoy small class sizes and one-on-one attention from Stetson’s excellent faculty. And as a Stetson MBA, you are part of the Stetson family and rich 125 year legacy.
The course of study is specifically designed to accommodate the non-business as well as the business degree holder. Indeed, combining the MBA with a non-business undergraduate degree is considered outstanding career preparation in many fields.
The Stetson MBA program is designed not to make you a technical specialist, but rather to provide you with a range of knowledge crucial to your business success. The program’s focus is developing you into an effective decision maker, the basic competence needed in any professional position.
With a Stetson MBA, you can excel in today’s ever-changing global business environment. You will be equipped to evolve as new managerial techniques and concepts appear at an unprecedented pace. Whether you are an aspiring manager or an experienced one, you will increase your own marketability and be competitive in a business environment where educational requirements of the job are increasing.
The MBA Program – Specifics & Curriculum
The Stetson MBA curriculum is divided into two broad areas: the pre-requisite, business foundation and the advanced, MBA level courses. Most applicants will not need foundation coursework and will begin advanced work immediately even if your undergraduate degree was in something other than business. Your coursework in the MSP program usually satisfies the pre-requisite, business foundation requirement. This allows the typical student to complete the required advanced business coursework in 4 semesters. Each student’s situation is evaluated individually. You will know exactly where you stand before starting the program.
The advanced coursework consists of 30 credit hours – 24 hours of business classes and 6 hours of electives [link to: mspharm-program] from the University of Florida’s College of Pharmacy.
Usually our MBA classes will meet via our audio teleconferencing facilities twice a week. Specific class meeting days/times will vary depending on both student and faculty scheduling needs. Individual faculty will confer with students in the class to determine an optimum mix of days and times.
