The Master of Business Administration degree (Online Program - OMBA) is an accelerated online option designed for working professionals. Students can complete their MBA in as few as 12 months with 48 credit hours. The Online MBA offers the same acclaimed faculty and education as on campus experiences and provides multiple opportunities for students to immediately apply classroom material in real-world situations.
Additional admissions requirements can be found under the Business School Admissions.
The general Master of Business Administration degree is awarded after the successful completion of the requirements listed below. A thesis option to the MBA degree is available, but not required. Students interested in this option should see the Associate Dean for Graduate Programs in the Business School.
All Online MBA students must maintain a minimum overall grade point average of 3.0 during each semester (a semester consists of both terms in summer, fall, or spring). Any Online MBA student whose overall grade point average falls below a 3.0 during the semester, will be placed on probation for the next eight semester hours of course work (see Probation in the General Information section).
No work may be transferred from another college or university. No grade below a “C” is acceptable in a required course. If a grade of “C-”, “D+”, “D”, “D-”, or “F” is made in a required course, the student must repeat the course and earn a grade of “C” or higher. When a course is repeated, both the original grade and the new grade for a repeated course will be included in the overall GPA for graduation purposes. To graduate, all Online MBA students must have a minimum overall grade point average of 3.0.
Early in the semester in which the degree is to be awarded, candidates must file an Intent to Graduate form with the Graduate School in compliance with graduation requirements.
The program consists of six terms each year, two in the summer, two in the fall and two in the spring. All MBA courses are offered twice per year.
