Your MBA on Your Terms
An undergraduate degree in business is not required to enter our MBA program. The curriculum has foundation courses built in, so students without a business background can build their core knowledge while pursuing an advanced degree. However, for students who have an undergraduate degree in business, our MBA builds on that knowledge base with advanced theory, a focus on critical thinking, and real-world problem-solving.

UM-Flint’s MBA program allows you to develop more in-depth competencies through concentrations in high-demand business disciplines including:

MBA classes center around team-based project work. This collaborative, interactive approach to learning draws directly from today’s most successful business practices in innovation, implementation, risk management, decision-making, and more.

MBA courses are offered in our mixed-mode NetPlus! format. This structure blends online education with two weekend (Friday & Saturday) on-campus sessions per semester. Students have the flexibility desired in a graduate program while still being engaged in a traditional classroom setting. The majority of course work is done online while integrating two campus sessions per semester. This gives students networking opportunities not found in most online programs.
NetPlus! students are involved in very interactive classroom experiences including professor lectures, group discussion/debates, in-class negotiations, group presentations, simulations, guest speakers, and much more. Additional advantages include:
- Opportunities to collaborate with other graduate students while on-campus
- Campus residency sessions that supplement online coursework and allow for face-to-face interactions
- NetPlus! format makes it convenient for students from a wide geographic area to pursue the MBA
- Campus sessions planned out two years in advance to allow scheduling ease
