The Master of Business Administration degree program is 36 credits, with options of 39 or 42 credit degree programs to provide necessary foundational courses. Students can transfer up to six graduate-level credits, or two courses, toward the program.
Two foundational courses will be available to those students who do not have an undergraduate degree in business or accounting, or the necessary documentation to show competency. These courses will target what students need to know to succeed in the Elizabethtown College MBA program. Areas covered may include accounting, finance, statistical analysis, economics, marketing, management, and strategic planning.
Applied Business Leadership in Action should be one of the last courses a learner takes. This course is the capstone course that integrates concepts, principles, practices, and applications from prior courses.
