Master of Business Administration Degree Requirements

MBA courses are presented in an accelerated format on campus—meaning you take one class, one evening per week for eight weeks. There are five accelerated terms each year beginning in August, October, January, March and June. The accelerated format is designed to accommodate working professionals pursuing an MBA. You can choose to take courses during all terms or just a few terms each year.

Prerequisite Requirements

To be eligible to apply for the MBA program, you must have completed a course in college algebra (or a comparable course approved by the MBA Program Director). You can take MAT 111: College Algebra at Mount Mary to complete this requirement.

Undergraduate coursework in accounting, finance and statistics are perquisites for graduate coursework. These three undergraduate courses are not required for admission to the MBA program, but are required prior to taking any MBA courses. These courses can be taken at Mount Mary, but may not be available in an accelerated format.

Degree Requirements & Completion Time

Thirty-six graduate credits are required for the MBA in general management (GM) and thirty-nine graduate credits are required for the MBA in health systems leadership (HSL). Regardless of the student’s chosen track, each student takes 6 courses (18 credits) in the core curriculum. Students interested in the GM concentration take 6 additional courses (18 credits) in broad-based managerial topics, and students interested in the HSL concentration take 7 additional courses (21 credits) in health systems leadership. Alternatively, students may choose to complete a 5 course (15 credits) graduate certificate in health systems leadership.
