The MBA Degree Program, which is accredited by AACSB, is designed to prepare students for superior administrative positions in both the private and public sectors. Emphasis is placed on the development of analytical abilities. Students are provided with a broad preparation in business administration while being allowed to focus on a variety of concentrations in specific business areas.
The UNO MBA Program is the largest in the Gulf South Region, now enrolling over 700 students. While the majority of these 700 students are local residents, a growing number of out-of-state and internationals are choosing the UNO MBA. We now have students more than 60 foreign nations enrolled in the UNO MBA Program.
A student can pursue the MBA Degree Program on either a full-time basis or a part-time basis. Since almost 70% of our MBA students work full-time, at least one section of each required MBA course is offered in the evening and a section is often offered during the afternoon. For the convenience of some of our students, courses are not just offered at our Lakefront Campus, but at various other campus locations, such as Downtown, Jefferson Center and Slidell. The College also offers Executive Education Programs, including an Executive MBA Program, and an Executive Master of Health Care Management Program.
The MBA Degree Program is designed to satisfy the needs of students with undergraduate degrees in business administration, as well as those without business administration degrees. Our MBA students come from various backgrounds, such as pharmacy, nursing, law, English, history, psychology, health care, engineering, banking, and philosophy, as well as the traditional business disciplines. The MBA Program curriculum consists of a minimum of 57 credit hours. This consists of 24 hours of Foundation Core Courses and 33 hours of Advanced Core Courses.
All 4400-level courses may be waived for AACSB business undergraduates, with a grade of "C" or better. The 4400 foundation core courses are not counted as graduate credit and must be taken before any of the advanced core courses. We suggest you contact the curriculum/scheduling advisors for the most accurate foundation course requirements for you.
