Master of Business Administration
The MBA Degree Program, fully accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International AACSB, is designed to prepare students for superior managerial positions in both the private and public sectors. Emphasis is placed on the development of analytical abilities and written and oral communication skills. 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 one of the largest in the Gulf South Region, enrolling approximately 500 students. While the majority of these students are local residents, a growing number of out-of-state and international students are choosing the UNO MBA. We are proud of the diversity of the UNO MBA participants and encourage the integration of all cultures into our educational experiences. A student can pursue the MBA Degree Program on a full-time basis or a part-time basis. Since the majority of our MBA students work full-time, at least one section of each required MBA course is offered in the evening and another section of the core courses is often offered during the afternoon. For added convenience, courses are not just offered at our Lakefront Campus, but at various other campus locations, as well.
The MBA Degree Program is designed to satisfy the needs of students with undergraduate degrees in business administration, as well as those without undergraduate degrees in business administration. 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. Such an array of backgrounds enhances the learning environment for all students. The MBA Program curriculum is generally composed of 57 credit hours: 24 hours of foundation core courses (4400-level) and 33 hours of advanced core courses (6000-level).
All 4400-level courses may be waived for AACSB accredited business school undergraduates, with a grade of "C" or better. These foundation core courses are not counted for graduate credit and must be taken before any of the advanced core courses may be taken. We suggest you contact the curriculum/scheduling advisors for the most accurate foundation course requirements for your individual needs.
